Explanation

Plug in numbers for p, s, and h, such as 2, 3, and 4, respectively. If Paul can grade 2 essays every half hour, then in 4 hours, he will grade 16 essays. If Sarah can grade 3 essays every hour, then in 4 hours, she will grade 12 essays.

Thus, Paul and Sarah will grade a total of 28 essays. Now, plug your numbers into each answer choice. Choices (E) and (G) result in 28. If you Plugged In and choice (F) also worked, you picked the same number for Paul and Sarah. If you picked choice (C), you didn’t notice that Paul grades p essays every half hour, not every hour.
