an airplane is at an altitude of 1,200 feet. It begins to ascend at a rate of 925 feet per minute. How many minutes will it take the plane to reach 16,000 feet

ok since the plane is at 1,200 ft and the goal altitude is 16.000 ft you need to subtract the goal altitude and the current altitude and that will give you 14,800 ft and since the plane is ascending at a constant rate off 925ft you divide 14,800 by 925 and you should get how many min. it takes to get to the goal altitude: 16 minutes
