Problem 13
If cows give cans of milk in days, how many days will it take cows to give cans of milk?
Solution
First, the problem states:
Multiply the current number of cows by to get the number of cows you want, and divide the number of days by the same amount because an increase in cows will cause a decrease in time.
Finally, multiply the current amount of cans by to get the number of cans you want, and multiply the number of days by the same amount because an increase in cans will cause an increase in time.
Therefore, our answer is ~jiang147369
