Pat bounces a basketball 25 times in 30 seconds. At that rate approximately how many times will pat bounce the ball in 150 seconds?

2 Answer

  • Pat will bounce the ball 125 times in 150 seconds

    Solution:

    Given that,

    Pat bounces a basketball 25 times in 30 seconds

    To find: Number of times Pat will bounce the ball in 150 seconds

    From given information,

    30 seconds = 25 times

    Therefore number of times ball bounces in 1 second is:

    [tex]\text{1 second } = \frac{25}{30} \text{ times }[/tex]

    So to find for 150 seconds, multiply both the sides by 150

    [tex]150 \text{ seconds } = \frac{25}{30} \times 150 = 125 \text{ times }[/tex]

    Therefore Pat will bounce the ball 125 times in 150 seconds
