A printer in the classroom prints 6 pages every 20 seconds. At this rate, how many seconds would it take to print a 27 paged report?

and if you dont wanna give me the answer, can you tell me how to solve it?

You could use proportions:

6 pages / 20 seconds = 27 pages / x seconds

and cross multiply (it's harder to visualize when typed like this :( sorry)

6x = 20(27)

6x = 540

x = 90 seconds

So it would take the printer 90 seconds to print 27 pages :) hope this helped

6 pages = 20 seconds

3 pages = 10 seconds

So... 27/6 = 4 remainder 3

20 sec x 4= 80 sec

3 pages = 10 sec

80 sec + 10 sec = 90 sec <---- final answer : )

the answer is 90 seconds or 1 minute 30 seconds
