Word Problem Wednesday: Planning for the Test
Sep 28, 2017
How do YOU like to study for a big test? A few minutes or hours spread over many days? Or do you stay up all night cramming the night before? In our word problem challenge below, Lisa wants to spread out her studying. Help Lisa figure out if she has enough time to get ready for the big Geography test. And don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the solution!
Challenge: Lisa needs to memorize the locations of all 54 countries in Africa for a geography test that will be 30 days from now. She memorizes 7 countries every 3 days. Every 2 days, she forgets a country and needs to re-memorize it. Will she have enough time to memorize all of the countries in Africa for her geography test?
