1. Susan has two and 1/2 hours to rehearse her speech. Her speech is 3 pages long. If she wants to spend the same amount of time on each page, how much time will she have to spend on each page?

 

How many times does 3 go into 2 and 1/2?

 

 

Since this is a division problem, we should change the mixed numbers to improper fractions.

 

 

Now invert and multiply

 

 

She should spend 5/6 of an hour on each page.
