When Gustav train, he will know his pulse. To quickly calculate his pulse, he counts how many plus strokes he has in 10 seconds. what is Gustavs if he has 31 pulse strokes in 10 seconds?

We need to find how many plus strokes (what *are* plus strokes?) he has in a minute. At least, I think you do... ðŸ˜¶

So use a ratio.

31 pulse strokes : 10 seconds = x pulse strokes : 60 seconds.

1860 = 10x

186 = x

Gustav's pulse is **186 pulse strokes per minute.**

I didn't fully understand the question so I might be wrong.
