This question if used with the learn zillion or open up software has 3 parts to it. The answer does not match the question in the Big heading but it does match the question in the sub heading. Adonaija is correct in that if you are looking at the 1st part of the question minutes per lap is 1.2, the second part pals per minute is.83 and the last part of that question is if Lin runs 21 laps at the same rate, how long does it take her, its 25.2 (.83*21). A good trick is to look at the words in the problem. If the word minutes comes first, then put that in the calculator first, if laps comes before minute, then put laps into your calculator first. This was always trick for me when trying to find it using a table, but once a colleague told me to look at the words, it changed everything.
