think of it this way if you eat 2 hot dogs in 1/2 a minute. how many do you eat in a minute

2/(1/2)=2*2=4

(1/3)/(5/6)=(1/3)(6/5)=2/5

he eats 2/5 of a pizza in a minute -
.4 pizzas/min or 2/5 pizza/min

You set it up as a ratio 1/3 : 5/6

Then solve the ratio so that the right side is 1. First multiply each side o f the ratio by 6, so that you get 2:5. Then Divide each side of the ratio by 5, so that you get 2/5 (.4) : 1. -
6 in of pizza per 50 minutes

6:50
