# Carla can read 18 pages in 25 minutes. How long will it take for her to read 76 pages?

Dec 1, 2016

It would take 106 minutes rounded to the nearest minute to read 76 pages.

#### Explanation:

The ration of time to pages is: $25 : 18$ which is the same as $\frac{25}{18}$

We need to how many minutes, let's call it $m$, it takes to read $76$ pages so we can write:

$\frac{25}{18} = \frac{m}{76}$

Solving for $m$ gives:

$76 \cdot \frac{25}{18} = 76 \cdot \frac{m}{76}$

$\frac{1900}{18} = \cancel{76} \cdot \frac{m}{\cancel{76}}$

$m = 105.6$
