it takes a 40 lb turkey two hours to cook. Tom baked his own turkey that was 1/5 the size of a 40 lb turkey. How long will it take for Toms turkey to bake ?

    This is a faulty problem.

    First, I've never seen a 40-lb. turkey.
    Second, it takes several hours to cook a 20-lb. turkey.
    Third, an 8-lb turkey would take much longer than 15 minutes!

    this problem was written by someone who cooks their thanksgiving dinner in the microwave.

    its a question in a math book. i tried to figure out the answer and got 15 minutes. hope its right ?

    Using the math the book's author expects, you're right. But I wouldn't have the nerve to turn in such a ridiculous answer.

  • math -

    40lbs=120mins;...8lbs=120mins/5=24mins....it takes 24mins to cook 8lbs of turkey.
