Q:
# Nancie and Suresh are typing. The rate at which Nancie is typing is represented by the equation y = 35x, where x is the time in minutes and y is the total number of words typed. The rate at which Suresh is typing is represented by this table. Select answers from the drop-down menus to correctly complete the statements.1 Nancie types at a rate of A 28, B 35, C 56, D 168 words per minute 2 and Suresh types at a rate of A 28, B 35, C 56, D 168 words per minute. 3 Nancie's rate is A greater than, B less than C equal to Suresh's rate.

Accepted Solution

A:

I think you might have forgotten to add Suresh typing speed table....

Time (min) Total words

0.5 28

3 168

14 784

We can easily obtain Suresh typing speed by dividing Total Words/Time

Time (min) Total words Speed (Words/min)

0.5 28 56

3 168 56

14 784 56

And we know that Nancie's typing speed is 35 Words/ min

So, Nancie's rate is less than Suresh's/

Time (min) Total words

0.5 28

3 168

14 784

We can easily obtain Suresh typing speed by dividing Total Words/Time

Time (min) Total words Speed (Words/min)

0.5 28 56

3 168 56

14 784 56

And we know that Nancie's typing speed is 35 Words/ min

So, Nancie's rate is less than Suresh's/
