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 amount of gingerbread produce is directlyproportional to the number of people making and the time they work. In equationform

2 ginerbread = k ( 2 person) ( 2 min)

Solve for k = ½

 

400 gingerbread = (1/2)( x persons)(400 min)

X = 2 persons
