# Carol spends 17 hours in a 2-week period practicing her culinary skills. How many hours does she practice in 5 weeks?

May 11, 2018

42 hours and 30 minutes

#### Explanation:

To get the time she practices in one week, divide 17 by 2 ; $\frac{17}{2}$

This equals 8.5

If you want to find out how many hours she practices in five weeks, then you multiply 8.5 by 5.

$8.5 \times 5$

This equals 42.5
