7-14.

Sao can text $1500$ words per hour. He needs to text a message with $85$ words. He only has $5$ minutes between classes to complete the text. Can he do it in $5$ minutes?  Homework Help ✎

Convert ''words per hour'' to ''words per minute.''

There are $60$ minutes in $1$ hour, so you need to divide $1500$ by $60$ to find out how many words he can type per minute.

$\frac{1500}{60}=25$ words per minute

How many words can he type in $5$ minutes if he can type $25$ words per minute?

$(25)(5)=?$
Does he have enough time to complete the $85$ word text?
