it will take 2 minutes because if a snail pace is 60 inches per minute means if you multiply 60 times 2 it will be 120 or you can add another 60 and it will give you 120

Ok, so here, we have the unit rate of the snail. Now, we need to set up a proportion.
60/1 = 120/x
Now, cross multiply.
60*x = 120*1
60x= 120
Now divide to solve for x.
60x/60 = 120/60
x = 120/60
x= 2
Now our final answer is 2.
Final answer: The snail will take 2 minutes to crawl 120 feet
