## Answer ( 1 )

Answer: 40 minutesStep-by-step explanation: The first thing you want to do is divide 24 by 3 to find how much each dancer rested per hour. In other words, find the unit rate. 24 divided by 3 is 8. Next, take the 8 and multiply it by 5, since we are trying to find how much each dancer rested in 5 hours. 8 x 5 = 40. So each contestant rested for 40 minutes.
