Oct 11, 2017

$\left(100 \text{ words")/("minute}\right)$

#### Explanation:

Melissa types 1300 words every 13 min.

$= \left(1300 \text{ words")/(13" minutes}\right)$

After simplifying,

$= \left(100 \text{ words")/(1" minute")=(100" words")/("minute}\right)$

Melissa types $100$ words per minute.
