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

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.

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
