OA:B
Total number of Frames\(= 2580 \quad Frames\)

Rate \(= \frac{5 \quad Frames}{6 \quad Second}\)

Time to run (in second) \(= \frac{2580 \quad Frames}{ \frac{5 \quad Frames}{6 \quad Second}}=\frac{2580*6}{5}\) seconds

Time to run (in minutes)\(=\frac{2580*6}{5*60}\) minutes \(= 51.6\) minutes

It will take 2580/(5/6) = 15,480/5 = 3096 seconds or 3096/60 = 51.6 minutes.

Alternate Solution:

We can set up a proportion: “5/6 of a frame is to 1 second as 2580 frames is to x seconds:”

(5/6)/1 = 2580/x

5/6 = 2580/x

5x = 6 x 2580

x = 6 x 516 seconds

In minutes, we divide by 60 (or 6 x 10), obtaining:

6 x 516 / 6 x 10 = 51.6 minutes.

Answer: B

Application of Concept Distance=Speed * Time

Time=Distance/ Speed

=2580/(5/6)
=(2580*6)/5
=516*6/60 minutes
=51.36 mins

Option B is the answer

We can use unitary method for this and get to the conclusion ->

\(\frac{5}{6}\) Frames ---------- 1 second

Hence,

1 Frame --------------- \(\frac{6}{5}\) seconds

Now we have 2580 frames, therefore,

2580 Frames ------------- \(\frac{6}{5} * 2580\) seconds

Solving further,

2580 Frames ------------- \(6 * 516\) seconds

Converting second to minutes

\(6 * 516\) seconds = \(\frac{6}{60} * 516\) minutes

Hence answer becomes, 51.6 Minutes

Hence, B
