Dec 17, 2016

Ho, Ho, Ho! On this Word Problem Wednesday, we've prepared a very special word problem for those of you who are gearing up for Christmas celebrations this weekend! Solve our word problem and check back tomorrow for the answer.

Rachel the Christmas elf can wrap 8 presents in 3 minutes. How long will it take Rachel to wrap 28 presents?

Update: Here's the solution!

Eight presents goes into 28 presents 3½ times. So, Rachel needs 3 minutes, 3½ times to wrap 28 presents.

3 × 3½ = 10 minutes, or 10 minutes and 30 seconds.
