This is just a proportion.

Since the question asks the rate of MINUTES PER HOLE,

the ratio should be:

# of minutes

number of holes

So, given the numbers, we set up as #180/18#

Since we want to get the denominator to 1 hole, we just simplify the fraction.

Our final answer is 10 minutes per 1 hole.
