the passengers of a cruise ship were shocked to learn that their ship was sinking. the ship is 218 ft tall and is sinking at the rate of 1/2 ft per minute. how long do the passengers have to abandon the ship?

    Abandon ship now!

    If all of the passengers could go to the topmost part -- at 218 feet -- then they'd have 218 * 2 = 436 minutes before the top went below the water.

    436 minutes
