Problem of the Week: Pies

Did you figure it out? Let's look at the solution!

 

In order to increase to 160°, the internal temperature of the pies will need to rise 160° – 60° = 100°.

Since 100° ÷ 2.5° per minute = 40 minutes, it’ll take 40 minutes for the pies to bake.

So, Nellie should take them out of the oven at 6:57 AM.

 

Look forward to next week's problem!
