It takes three cats three minutes to catch three mice. (Each cat can catch a mouse in three minutes.)

Assuming they continue catching mice at the same pace, how long will it take the three cats to catch 100 mice?


102 minutes

Each cat catches a mouse in three minutes. It would take them six minutes to catch six, nine to catch nine, and 99 to catch 99; but what about the 100th mouse? It would still take a cat three minutes to catch him, making the total 102 minutes.
