10. Question:An elevator starts on the 100th floor of a building. It descends 4 floors every 10 seconds. At what floor will the elevator be 60 seconds after it starts?

Because, step 1 60 dividend by 10 equal to 6, step 2 6 times 4 equal to 24, step 3 100 subtract 24 equal to 76. So the answer is 76th floor
