Jim and Holly are making gingerbread men. It takes them both 2 minutes to make 2 gingerbread shapes. At this rate, how many people are needed to make 400 gingerbread men in 400 minutes?

answered by Guest

The answer is 2 people. Jim and Holly are 2 persons making 2 gingerbreads for 2 minutes. So, for both of them, 2 minutes are necessary for 2 gingerbreads. Lets calculate how many gingerbreads they can make for 400 minutes. 2 min : 2 gingerbreads = 400 min : x gingerbreads. x = 2 gingerbreads * 400 min : 2 min = 400 gingerbreads. So, the two of them can make 400 gingerbreads for 400 minute without anyones help.
