An underground mine elevator descends 12% of the total depth every minute. The total depth of the elevator is 75 meters below the ground.

How many meters below the ground is the elevator after 2 minutes?

Each minute is descends  12% of 75 meters; find this amount  (hint:  0.12 x 75  =  ....)

 

To find how far in two minutes, multiply the above answer by 2.
