if it takes 1 monkey to eat a banana in 1 minute how long will it take 8 monkeys to eat 8 bananas

• maths -

sorry how many minutes will it take 8 monkeys

• maths -

Each monkey has to eat one banana? So the total will be 8 bananas? The answer will be just 1 minute (assuming that all monkeys eat at the same time)

• maths -

I am not so certain they eat at the same time: After all, we know they have to watch others first, what monkey see, monkey do.
