If 4 cooks can bake 8 pies in 6 hours????? 2013-03-18
From Kenneth:

I want to determine which quantities are directly and inversely proportional in order to determine the answer for the following:.

If 4 cooks can bake 8 pies in 6 hours, 2 cooks can bake how many pies in 4 hours?

Answer: 2 2/3 pies

Can someone fully explain what I need to know in order to determine what is directly and inversely proportional in the example above?

I thank you for your reply.
