The machine copies at a rate of
\(\frac{4pages}{1sec}*\frac{60secs}{1 min}=\frac{240pages}{1 minute}\)

How many minutes must Joe schedule to copy 975 pages?

W/r = t, time to finish the work:

\(\frac{975p}{\frac{240p}{1min}}= 975 *\frac{1}{240}= 4.xx\)

A remainder of work time means he needs more than four minutes to finish.

To check: (240 * 4) = 960
4 minutes = only 960 pages, not 975

The machine is reserved in 1-minute increments.
He must schedule one more minute (he won't use all of it)

4 + 1 = 5 minutes
