Zac moved 1/5 of the things from his old bedroom to his new dorm in 32 1/2 minutes.
How long will it take in minutes for him to move all his things to his new dorm room?
I need help with the problem I want to know the equation and how to get the answer. And please tell me the answer!
(1/5)x = 32.5
Solve for x
Hint: I'd change 1/5 to its decimal equivalent.
Is the answer somehow 6 1/2
6 1/2 minutes? No!
0.2x = 32.5
x = 32.5 / 0.2
Connie rode the roller coaster at the amusement park. After 3 minutes, the ride was 3/4 complete. How long did the entire ride take?
