    Take the 2 numbers you know and use them to calculate how many were shot each hour, then you'll know your answer is 6 times the # that were shot in 1 hour.

    Set up a proportion problem. 

    359/4 = x/6

    4x = 6(359)

    4x = 2154

    X = 538.5 

    So about 538 or 539 in 6 hours.

    359 divided by 4 is 89.75 throws an hour.

    89.75 times 6 is 538.5 throws
