If a jiffy is 1/100 of a second, then there are 100 jiffies in each second and 6000 jiffies in a minute.

50 words / minute  =  50 words / 6000 jiffies  =  1 word / 120 jiffies

This means that it takes 120 jiffies to type one word.

Ella can actually type faster than a jiffy.......but only if she's in a jam and kneads more bread.
