Method I - Set up a proportion

x words/ 5 minutes = 180words / 2minutes

Multiply both sides by 5 minutes

x words = 180words / 2minutes * 5 minutes

x words = 450 words <––––––

----------------------------

Method II - Rate

Calculate the rate , ie. number of words per minute

180 words/ 2minutes = 90 words / minute

multiply the rate by the time

90 words/ minute * 5 minutes = 450 words

450 words <––––––
