10-60.

Sherice can fill lemonade cups at a rate of four cups per minute.

1. How many cups can she fill in $6$ minutes?

To find the number of cups filled in a certain amount of time, multiply the rate by the time.

$\left(\frac{4\; \text{cups}}{\text{minute}}\right)\cdot (6\; \text{minutes})$

$24$ cups

2. How many cups can she fill in $10$ minutes?

See the help for part (a).

3. If Sherice fills $c$ cups in t minutes, write an equation that relates $c$ and $t$.

Notice that in parts (a) and (b), the rate must be multiplied by time $\left(t\right)$ in order to find the number of cups (c).

$c = 4t$
