Problem 5 :

David can do 90 units of a work in 180 minutes and Alex can complete 80 units of the same work in 2 hours. Find the ratio of number of units of work completed by David and Alex.

Answers

1. Answer :

12 chickens ----> 36 eggs

1 chicken ----> (36/12) eggs

1 chicken ----> 3 eggs

So, one chicken will lay 3 eggs.

2. Answer :

To find the number of students accommodated in 3 buses, we have to find the unit rate.

That is, we have to find the number of students can accommodate in 1 bus.

Then, multiply it by 13.

4 buses ----> 192 students

1 bus ----> (192/4) students

1 bus ----> 48 students

3 buses ----> (48 ⋅ 3) students

3 buses ----> 144 students

So, 144 students can accommodate in 3 buses.

3. Answer :

To find the number of word typed by John in 13 minutes, we have to find the unit rate.

That is, we have to find the number of words typed by him in 1 minute.

Then, multiply it by 13.

1 hour ----> 2400 words

60 minutes ----> 2400 words

1 minute ----> (2400/60) words

1 minute ----> 40 words

13 minutes ----> (40 ⋅ 13) words

13 minutes ----> 520 words

So, the number of words types by John in 13 minutes is 520 words.

4. Answer :

To find the ratio of the cost of a fountain pen to the cost of a ball pen, we have to find the unit rate.

That is, we have to find the cost of each pen.

Cost of 12 fountain pens = $180.

Cost of one fountain pen = 180/12

Cost of one fountain pen = $15

Cost of 8 ball pens = $56.

Cost of one ball pen = 56/8

Cost of one ball pen = $7

Then, we have

Cost of a fountain pen : Cost of a ball pen = 15 : 7

5. Answer :

To find the ratio of number of units of work completed by David and Alex, we have to find the unit rate.

That is, we have to find the number of units of work completed by each in 1 hour.

David :

180 minutes ----> 90 units

3 hours ----> 90 units

1 hour ----> (90/3) units

1 hour ----> 30 units

Alex :

2 hours ----> 80 units

1 hour ----> (80/2) units

1 hour ----> 40 units

Then, we have

No. of units (David) : No. of units (Alex) = 30 : 40

No. of units (David) : No. of units (Alex) = 3 : 4
