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
