Re: If Elier can bake c cakes in h hours, then at this rate how [#permalink]

Explanation

Plug in your own numbers for c and h.

Let’s say Elier can bake 14 cakes in 2 hours; this makes c = 14 and h = 2. That means he can bake 7 cakes per hour. At this rate, it will take him 111 hours to bake 777 cakes. Circle 111 as your target number. When you plug in your values, choices (A) and (D) are way too big. Choices (C) and (E) are way too small. Using your calculator, you can determine that choice (B) matches. _________________

A. \(777ch\)

B. \(\frac{777h}{c}\)

C. \(\frac{h}{777c}\)

D. \(\frac{777c}{h}\)

E. \(\frac{c}{777h}\)

Drill 2 Question: 12 Page: 339

Elier can bake c cakes in h hours So, Elier can bake ONE cake in h/c hours So, Elier can bake TWO cakes in 2h/c hours (twice the time for ONE cake) So, Elier can bake THREE cakes in 3h/c hours (three times the time for ONE cake) . . . So, Elier can bake 777 cakes in 777h/c hours

The other method I used is: work = rate * time Picking random numbers: 100 cakes --> 4 hours 1 cake --> 4 hours/ 100 cakes (we can see its h/c) so 777 cakes --> 777 *h/c Would the above method be right to approach this kind of question?
