Luke 1:38

The elves are holding an end of Christmas dance-off. They need 2 hours of music. Each song is approximately 2.5 minutes long. How many songs do they need for their dance-off?

Could you share your thinking Alex?

2 hours is 120 minutes in minutes. 120 minutes divided by 2.5 is 48 songs.

48 SONGS! 2.5 X 4 = 10 MINS SO 4 X 6 = 24 SONGS AN HOUR
24 X 2 = 48 SONGS IN 2 HOURS
