The cooking time for a mini-loaf of bread is 5 minutes longer than half the time it takes to bake a regular-sized loaf of bread. If it takes 25 minutes to bake a mini-loaf, how long does it take to bake a regular-sized loaf?
x = regular-sized loaf time {cooking time for mini is 5 minutes longer than half the time for regular}0.5x + 5 = mini-loaf time 0.5x + 5 = 25 {it takes 25 minutes to bake a mini-loaf} 0.5x = 20 {subtracted 5 from each side} x = 40 {divided each side by 0.5} It takes 40 minutes to bake a regular-sized loaf Ask the House
