Given: 1 page in 3 minutes.

There are 60 minutes in 1 hour and thus there are \(\frac{60}{3}=20\) time periods of 3 minutes in 1 hour.

Since 1 page is read per 3 minutes while there are 20 time periods of 3 minutes in 1 hour, Suzanne then read \(1\times20=20\) pages in 1hour.

We are interested in the number of pages read in 5 hours. Since 20 pages are read per hour, there are then \(5\cdot20=100\) pages read in 5 hours
