I do not understand this problem, and I must write an inequality for it too: Nilsa is working on a 60 minute math test. There are 20 questions on the test. If it takes her 20 minutes to complete 12 of the questions, what is the greatest amount of time on average she can spend on each of the 8 remaining questions? I really do not understand what the inequality would be, and I have been stuck on this for 25 minutes already! Please help ASAP!
