As a busboy in a restaurant, Amiel takes 1/12 h to clear and reset a table. How many tables can Amiel clear in 2/3 h?

1/12 hour = 5 minutes
2/3 hour = 40 minutes
What do you think the answer is?

How did you get 5 mintues and 40 mintues?

Math  Ms. Sue, Saturday, October 4, 2008 at 8:50pm
1/12 * 60 minutes = 5 minutes
(Look at a clock.)
2/3 * 60 minutes = 40 minutes.

1/12 of an hour is 1/12*60= 5min
2/3 of hour= 2/3*60min=40 min
