Trying to understand how to solve this?
Paige spends 1 hour on her homework. She spends equal amounts of time on all subjects. If Paige spends ½ hour on Spanish, how many subjects does she study?

Because there are two half hours in one hour, I bet she has two subjects.

she only has half an hour left after Spanish so 2 subjects is all

So we know that Paige spends an equal amount of time on each subject. We also know that she studies Spanish for a half hour or 30 minutes. So what the question is really asking you is how many increments of 30 minutes are in a hour or 60 minutes. So what's 30/60?
