# A ferris takes a maximum of 60 people in 24 minutes. What is the maximum wheel 24 minutes number of the wheel in 2 hours?

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

#### Explanation:

Divide 2 hours by 24 minutes.

First change 2 hours into minuets

$2 h o u r s \times \left(60 \frac{\min}{h}\right) = 120 \min$

Next divide 120 min by 24 mins

$120 \frac{\min}{24 \min} = 5$

Next multiple the five rotations by 60 people per rotation.

$5 \times 60 p e o = 300 p e o$

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