A jiffy is considered 1/100 of a second in science. Ella can type 50 words/min. On average, how many jiffies does she take to type each word?
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.
