In fact, the formula is exactly the same, except we substitute "work" for distance:</p>
<p>$$work = rate \times time$$</p>
<p>Because they're the same, we solve them basically the same way we solve distance problems.</p>
<p><strong><span style="color:#8e44ad;">Example</span></strong> </p>
<p>Samantha can finish $5$ drawings in $12$ minutes. How many drawings does she complete in $300$ minutes? </p>
<p>Her rate is $\frac{5 \ drawings}{12 \ minutes}$.</p>
<p>$$work = \frac{5}{12} \times 300 = 125 \ drawings$$</p>
