A recruiter travels 1,100 miles during a 40-hour workweek. If she spends 2/5 of her time traveling, how many hours does she spend traveling?
16
22
5.5
8
Detailed Explanation
Don’t let the number of miles traveled confuse you — you don’t use them to solve the problem.
2/5 of a 40-hour workweek is 2/5 × 40/1 = 80/5.
Reduce the fraction: 80 ÷ 5 = 16 hours per week spent traveling.
