how fast did shon drink the slushy? 

how long did it take him to drink all the slushy?

the answer to your first question is that he drank it at 5 milliliters per sec. 

and the answer to your final question it will take him 42 seconds to drink all the slushy and a big brain freeze

Thanks, DC  !!!


Here's the way  DC arrived at  the answer


He drank   [ 275 - 210 ]  = 65 mL


To find the rate he drinks per second :      65   / 13    =  5 mL  per second


To find out how long it took him to drink all the slushy.....   275  / 5      =    55  seconds to drink it all


And   55 - 13  = 42 seconds to drink the remaining amount
