Ounces  needed  =  (6/2) * 5  =   3 * 5  = 15

Grams needed =   15 * 28  =   420

She has 240  grams

So...she  needs  420  - 240   =  180 more grams

This is an inverse ratio.

5 workers : 3.5 hours

1 worker : 3.5*5

3 workers : (3.5*5)/3

Follow the pattern what is 2?

Ask if you don't understand anything.

5 builders   take  3.5 hrs to build a wall

So...to calculate  the hours, H,  that it will take 2 builders to build the same wall  we have

5 * 3.5  = 2  * H

17.5 = 2 * H     divide both sides by 2

8.75  =  H

So  the total amt to  be paid  =

2 workers  at 9.30 pounds/hr * (8.75) hrs  =   162.75 pounds

I see....since the workers are paid for 9.3 pounds for each hr  or part of an hour they work.....we need to round 8.75  up to 9

So we have

2 * 9.3 * 9  =   167.4 pounds
