Q:
# At all trials and hearings, a court reported types every word spoken during the proceedings so that there is a written record of what transpired. Because they must type every word, the average court reporter must be able to type a minimum rate of 3.75 words per second in order to be certified. Suppose a trial transcript contains 25 pages with an average of 675 words per page. Assuming the court reporter typed the transcript at the minimum rate, how long was she actively typing? A) 1 hour, 15 minutesB) 1 hour, 45 minutesC) 2 hours, 30 minutesD) 3 hours

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:AStep-by-step explanation:She can type 3.75 words per second.There are 60 seconds in a minuteTherefore she can type 3.75 * 60 = 225 words per minute.If 1 page contains 675 words, it will take 675 // 225 words /min = 3 minutesTherefore 25 pages will take 75 minutes (3 * 25 = 75)75 minutes = 1 hour with 15 minutes left over.
