In a game of six players that lasts for 50 minutes, two reserves substitute for each player so that all players, including reserves, are on the field for the same length of time.

How long is each player on the field?

37.5 minutes each (times 8 is total man-minutes for the team, divided by 6 is total man-minutes per men on the field, which comes to 50, as expected)

ReplyDeleteNice work Abe. Anytime it's a math question, you seem to get the jump on everyone.

ReplyDeleteHa. Well, I have enough training in things like this. And it is a convenient distraction from the real work I'm supposed to be doing :)
