1, 1 cat catches 1 rat in 1 minute...... SO, one cat will catch 100 rats in 100 minutes, assuming no feline fatigue element, and assuming the rats do not become more experienced in evasion, at the given rate of one rat per minute per cat.

it's basically impossible because you know that it takes 1 cat to catch 1 mouse, so that means it takes 100 cats to catch 100 mice. But the question you have doesn't tell me how many minutes it takes for 1 cat to catch 1 mouse. e.g say it took 5 minutes for 1 cat to catch 1 mouse you times 5 by 100 and you get 500 so it would take 500 minutes for 100 cats to catch 100 mice. but your question doesn't have the time for how long it would take for 1 cat to catch 1 mouse. so therefore your question can't be answered.

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.

There are 260 minutes.

1 cat

If it takes 5 cats 5 minutes to catch 5 mice, then it would also take 100 cats 5 minutes to catch 100 mice. Each cat catches one mouse in one minute, so the time it takes depends on the number of cats, not the number of mice.

it takes 3 cats to eat 3 mice in 3 minutes. Meaning 3 cats can eat 99 mice in 99 mins. Those 3 cats will take 102 mins to eat one cat. YOu need one extra cat to eat the last mice. So the answer is 4 cats.

I assume those 5 cats are working simultaneously. If you give those 5 cats 20 times the minutes (5min x 20 = 100min), they are gonna catch 20 times the rats (5 rats x 20 = 100 rats). So 5 cats can catch 100 rats in 100 minutes.

Sailors take cats for many reasons one of them is to catch mice

It would still take 3 minutes according to the setup of the question, assuming there are enough rats to make this work. It takes 1 cat 3 minutes to find a rat, and 3 minutes for 3 cats to each find a rat. So 100 cats would only take 3 minutes to find 100 rats. Time is irrelevant since the only factors changing are the cats and the rats. However, this question assumes too many things that would likely not happen. The question assumes an even density of rats, that the cat's are equally able to catch rats, and that there are enough rats.
