Sarah's Simian Taxi Service can transport 120 monkeys in 4 cars. Elphie comes in with her flying monkeys that have broken wings. She wants to transport as many of them as she can to the vet (although the vet might have a heart attack upon sight of the winged monkeys, and the green girl!) with the amount of cars available. Sarah has ten cars available. How many monkeys can Elphie get to the vet?

Answer

She can transport 300 monkeys.

If 4 cars hold 120 monkeys, you do 120/4 and you will get the unit rate, which is 30 monkeys per car. You then do 30 monkeys x 10 cars and get 300 total monkeys.
