Eugene takes 5/6 minute to run 1 lap around the track. => meaning 5/6 minute = 50 seconds because in 1 minute there are 60 seconds, so they parted this into 6 parts, 10 minutes each => 60 / 6 = 6 or 6/6 If he runs around the track at the same phase for ¼ hour. Find the number of laps did Eugene run: => ¼ hour = 15 minutes, because in 1 hour they parted it into 4 parts. => So, how mnay 50 seconds are there in 15 minutes? => 15 minutes  x 60 seconds  =  900 seconds => 900 seconds / 50 seconds = 18 So, Eugene were able to complete 18 laps.
