Answer:

5 rotations of 24 mins carrying a maximum of 300 people.

Explanation:

Divide 2 hours by 24 minutes.

First change 2 hours into minuets

# 2 hours xx (60 min/h) = 120 min#

Next divide 120 min by 24 mins

# 120 min/(24 min) = 5 #

Next multiple the five rotations by 60 people per rotation.

# 5 xx 60 peo = 300 peo #

In two hours the ferris wheel will make 5 rotations carrying a maximum of 300 people.
