# If 16 cakes can be baked in 1 hour. How many can be baked in 5 3/4 hours?

### 8 Answers | Add Yours

16 cakes can be baked in 1 hour. Assume all the cakes are baked at the same rate and there is no difference in the time required for each cake as the total number changes.

The number of cakes that can be baked in `5 3/4` hours is `5 3/4*16` = `(23/4)*16 = 92`

**92 cakes can be baked in `5 3/4` hours.**

16 cakes can be baked in 1 hour. The number of cakes that can be baked in 5 3/4 hours is simply the product of time in hours and the number of cakes that can be baked in one hour which is 16.

5 3/4 hours is equal to 5.75 hours. The number of cakes baked in 5.75 hours is 5.75*16 = 92.

In 5 3/4 hours 92 cakes can be baked.

**QUESTION:-**

**If 16 cakes can be baked in 1 hour. How many can be baked in 5 3/4 hours?**

**SOLUTION:-**

Total Cakes baked in one hour = 16

Cakes baked in `5(3/4)` hours = ?

To find the number of cakes that can be baked in 5 3/4 hours;

Cakes baked in `5(3/4)` hours = total cakes baked in 1 hour x `5(3/4)`

= 16 x `23/4`

= 4 x 23

= 92

**Therefore total 92 cakes can be baked in 5 and a 3/4th hours**

` `

16* 5 3/4

do the easy way:

16*5= 80

16*3/4= 12

80+12= 92.

92 would be your answer.

If 16 cakes can be baked in 1 hour. How many can be baked in 5 3/4 hours?

16*5.75=92 cakes

If 16 cakes can be baked in 1 hour. How many can be baked in 5 3/4 hours?

We can use dimensional analysis to figure this out. Don't worry if you don't know what that is exactly---its fairly easy to understand.

Start with our given:

5.75 hours

Multiply by our conversion factor

5. 75 hours x 16 cakes

1 hour

Make sure that our units cancel out!

5.75 x 16 = 92 cakes.

If 16 cakes can be baked in 1 hour. How many can be baked in 5 3/4 hours?

16/60 = 0.26666666666 meaning .2666 cakes per minute

60/4=15x3=45

60x5=300

300+45=345

345 minutes in 5 hour 3/4

345x.26666666666= 92 so 92 cakes

becuase you can bake 16 cakes in an hour

so it is 16cakes/hour

and when yoo have to caculate how many cake you can bake in 5and 3/4 hours you just have to use 16*5 3/4 and you get 92 cakes
