Cellphones have become an integral part of our life, whether we like it or not. It has pervaded every sphere of life, to the extent that even beggars have cell phones.
1.Cell phones can be very distracting from more important events in a child’s life such as studying, doing homework, or even the street. Studies have shown that children are more likely to be hit by a car if they are talking or texting on a cell phone while crossing the street. Since cell phones can connect children to their friends and the Internet, they can take away from study or homework time
2.Cheating with cell phones has become a huge issue in many schools. Students can text answers under their desks during tests. Since many phones are now Internet compatible, children can sometimes even use a search engine on their phone to find answers to test questions. If the child is caught cheating they can face serious consequences from the school.
The simplest way I can explain* is for these types of problems, all you do is make an equation like the one above and use an X as the numerator in the second equation over the denominator, which should be something like 120 in this problem. So after you find the information for the problem, which is the part where it states how much time a line of 48 people had to wait, make an equation using that information, which is 12/48. Then to finish the equation, use the 120 people in line part and make another equation that has an X as the numerator, or the number on top. It should look like this:
