Worksheet

1. The number of patients Dr. Wong can see varies directly as the time it takes her to see them. If she can see 11 patients in 3 hours, how long it take her to see 66 patients?

2. The speed of a vehicle varies inversely as the time it takes to travel a fixed distance. If a vehicle travels a fixed distance at 20 miles per hour in 60 minutes, how fast must it travel to cover the same distance in 25 minutes?

Answer #1

**Q1.**

**Number of patients(n) is directly proportional to the
time(t) it takes her to see them implies**

**No of patients seen by doctor in 3 hours is 11
implies**

**Therefore, the relation becomes**

**For n=66 implies**

**Hence, it will take 18 hours for Dr. Wong to see 66
patients**

**Q2.**

**Speed is inversely proportional to time it takes to
travel a fixed distance implies**

**For a fixed distance s with speed v=20 mph the value of
t=60 min=1 hours implies**

**Therefore, the relation for v becomes**

**For the vehicle to travel fixed distance s in 25 minutes
implies calculate v for t=25/60=5/12**
