Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:Spinning Swings10 more ridersStep-by-step explanation:To find which ride will have more riders each hour, we need to first convert an hour into minutes.1 hour = 60 minutesNow we let's first find how many riders there will be in the race cars.So there are 25 riders every 30 minutes.in 60 minutes there will be:25 x 2 = 50 RidersNow for the spinning swings there are 20 riders every 20 minutes.In 60 minutes there will be:20 x 3 = 60 RidersTherefore, the spinning swings will have more riders as 60 > 50.Now to find how many more riders there will be in the spinning swings.We simply subtract the total number of riders of each ride from each other.Race Cars = 50Spinning Swings = 6060 - 50 = 10There will be 10 more riders in the spinning cups than the race cars.
