Sample Problem

If 5 cats take 5 minutes to eat 5 fish, how long will it take 10 cats to eat 10 fish?

  minutes

Solution

Since five cats take five minutes to eat five fish, this means that one cat takes five minutes to eat one fish. Therefore, the time for ten cats to eat ten fish is the same as the time for one cat to eat one fish, which is still five minutes.
