Parking at a garage for an hour costs four tokens. With 20 tokens, how many hours can you park? We’ve got a simple math problem that we can solve with a single equation.

Because the numbers aren’t huge, it can also be solved by multiplying them. The answer is then explained step by step using multiple ways.

**Solution**

**Step 1: **

- Carefully read the question: an hour of parking in a garage costs 4 tokens.
- To answer this question, we’ll use the unitary technique.
- Parking at a garage for an hour costs 4 tokens.
- Calculate the number of hours you can park in a garage for 1 token.
- If parking in a garage for an hour costs 4 tokens,
- Then parking in a garage for 1/4 hour will cost 1 token.

**Step 2:**

- We can park in a garage for (1/4) * 20 = 5 hours with 20 tokens.

**So, with 20 tokens, we can park for 5 hours.**

**Another approach is to**

- If we divide 20 tokens into 4 groups, we will end up with 5 groupings of tokens. Each group of tokens represents an hour of parking time.
- This will give us 5 groups, or a total of 5 hours.

**So, with 20 tokens, we can park for 5 hours**.

**Another approach is to**

The question states that parking in a garage costs 4 tokens, and how many hours can we park with 20 tokens.

- 4 tokens for 1 hour ———— – Formula a
- 2 hours: 8 tokens Multiply both sides of Equation a by 2
- 3 hours multiply both sides of Equation a by 3: 12 shillings
- Add 4 hours to both sides of Equation a: 16 tokens are required.
- Multiply both sides of Equation a by 5 for a total of 20 tokens in 5 hours.

**So, the solution to this query is that with 20 tokens, we can park for 5 hours.**
