Q:
# A snail moves 1/40 of a mile in 5/6 of an hour. If the snail continues at this pace, how far, in miles, does it move in one hour?

Accepted Solution

A:

Solution:As per the problem A snail moves 1/40 of a mile in 5/6 of an hour.We have been asked to find how far, in miles, does it move in one hour?Since the snail moves 1/40 of a mile in 5/6 of an hour.So the snail will moves [tex] \frac{1}{40}*6=\frac{3}{20} [/tex] of a mile in [tex] \frac{5}{6}*6=5 [/tex] hours.So snail moves [tex] \frac{3}{20}*\frac{1}{5}=\frac{3}{100}=0.03 [/tex] miles in 1 hour.
