If 4 kittens can eat 4 mice in 4 minutes, then each one can eat one mouse per minute, so 12 kittens can eat 12 mice in 12 minutes.
Not true, check your math and get back to me!
they can eat 4
Nope, keep trying.
12 kittens x 12 minutes = 144 mice
Once again, check your math.
Keep trying.
58 mice?
NO!
It’s more than four and less than 144, and less than 58.
But keep those guesses coming!!!
36 – Each cat eats one mouse every four minutes, thus can eat three mice in twelve minutes, meaning twelve cats would eat 36 mice in twelve minutes.
YES! 36 Mice is what they can eat, for the reasons you stated.
You are correct and today’s winner!
