Question: The number of nurses in a hospital is inversely proportion to the time it takes nurses in the hospital to complete their daily patient assessments.

If it takes 30 Nurses 2 hours complete all patient assessments. How long would it take 5 nurses to complete the same patient assessments. 

Answer:

30 \text{ Nurses} = 2 \text{ hours}

If we divide the left by 6 we need to multiple the right by 6. This gives the answer. 

5 \text{ Nurses} = 12 \text{ hours}
