Given,
Taylor has job unpacking boxes and stocking shelves with new merchandise at a local clothing store.
She gets paid per pox of merchandise.
She needs to unpack 38 boxes to earn money to pay for her summer camp fees .
Each box takes the same amount of time.
she can unpack 4 boxes in 3 hours.
We need to find how long will it take her to unpack 38 boxes.
We have,
38 boxes to unpack.
4 boxes in 3 hours.
We can write it as:
4 boxes = 3 hours.
Divide it by 4 into both sides.
4/4 boxes = 3/4 hours
1 box = 3/4 hours
We see that for 1 box to unpack it takes around 3/4 hours.
1 box = 3/4 hours
Multiplying 38 on both sides.
38 x 1 box = 38 x 3/4 hours
38 boxes = 28.5 hours.
We see that unpacking 38 boxes will take 28.5 hours.
28.5 hours = 28 hours 30 minutes
Thus the time taken to unpack 38 boxes is 28 hours 30 minutes.
