Answer:40 min per period

Step-by-step explanation:When it has 8 periods :

Total time = 45 min per period for 8 period

Total time = 45 × 8 min

When it has 9 periods : let each period be of x min

Total time = x min per period for 9 period

Total time = x × 9 min

As total time remains same,

45 × 8 = x × 9

5 x 8 = x

40 = x
