If 5 Cats kill 5 Rats in 5 minutes that equals 1 rat killed each minute by each cat. So, in twice as many minutes the same ammount of cats will kill twice as many rats... 5 cats will kill 10 rats in 10 minutes. And if left for five times as long, which is 50 minutes, those same 5 cats will kill 50 rats. So obviously you will need twice as many cats to kill twice as many rats in the same time. So the answer is... You will need 10 cats to kill 100 rats in 50 minutes.
