    That’s some slow sandwich making at only three per hour each. It would take 72 of them to make 216 in one hour.

  • Howard

    I agree. These are some slow sandwich makers. I hypothesize that this problem came from one of the Common Core textbooks at the middle school level.

  • The answer is 12.if 6 makes 36 in two hours.6×36=216 to get that number in one hour double the sandwich makers..

  • Margot

    72 sandwichmakers. They’d get in each other’s way so much that nothing would get done…….

  • Lehcar

    There would need to be 36 sandwhich makers. 36 goes into 216, 6 times. 6 times 6 is 36.

  • Crabman, you are today’s winner!
    72. Each sandwich maker can make 3 sandwiches in one hour.
