Answer:It will take Amy approximately 5.28 hours to count to 19,000.Step-by-step explanation:The first step to solve this problem is finding how many minutes it takes for Amy to count to 19,000. In each minute, she counts 60 numbers. So1 minutes - 60 numbersx minutes - 19,000 numbers[tex]60x = 19,000[/tex][tex]x = \frac{19,000}{60}[/tex][tex]x = 316.7 minutes[/tex]It is going to take 316.7 minutes for Amy to count to 19,000. How many hours are 316.7 minutes? Each hour has 60 minutes, so:1 hour - 60 minutesx hours - 316.7 minutes[tex]60x = 316.7[/tex][tex]x = \frac{316.7}{60}[/tex][tex]x = 5.28[/tex]It will take Amy approximately 5.28 hours to count to 19,000.
