to check all the files?

**jen**, Thursday, April 9, 2009 at 3:01amif you add another 40%, you will be done with 80% in 600 seconds. 20% is left. .20 times 600=120 sec

600+120=720 sec

**Reiny**, Thursday, April 9, 2009 at 8:03amJen is wrong.

A simple test of taking 40% of her answer of 720, which would be 288, would have indicated it was not right

let the total time be x seconds

so .4x = 300

x = 300/.4 = 750 seconds

(check: 40% of 750 = 300)
