If it takes 42 minutes to load 3 1/2 trucks, how many minutes will it take to load 6 1/2 trucks?

Answer: 78 minutes

Explanation

Let x represent the number of minutes it takes to load 1 truck.

We know that it takes 42 minutes to load 3*1/2 trucks.

The time it takes to load 6*1/2 truck is then given by 6*1/2*x.

Thus it takes 78 minutes to load 6*1/2 trucks.
