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.

$\frac{1500}{60}=25\text{ words per minute}$

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?
