Ghosts and Fractions! Spooky

Question: Peter and Ray walk 4½ miles to get to the library to investigate some paranormal activity. If they can walk 3 miles in 1 hour, then how many minutes does it take them to get to the library?

 

Solution: Since 3 miles goes into 4½ miles 1 times, it takes Peter and Ray 1½ hours to walk to the library. An hour is 60 minutes, so 1½ hours is 60 × 1½ = 90 minutes.
