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.

3 cats can catch 3 rats in 100 minutes.. Use this proportion of 3/3=x/100 which are both equal to 100 minutes. cross multiple 300=3x

x=100

answer: 100 cats can catch 100 rats in 100 minutes

None. Each will only cat 33.3 rats in 100 minutes, so none will catch 100 during that 100 minutes.

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.

1 cat catches 1 rat every 5 minutes. 1 cat catches 20 rats in 100 minutes. Therefore 5 cats would catch 100 rats in 100 minutes. C=Cat R=Rat M=Minute 1C=1R in 5M 5C=5R in 5M 1C=20R in 100M 100M divide 20R= 5C so 5C catches 5R in 100M

It will take 3 minutes if you look at this problem mathematically. Both scenarios have a ratio of 1 rat to 1 cat. 3 minutes multiplied by 1/1 equals 3 minutes.

yes,but only when it has nothing else avalable

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.

3 cats, 3 rats in 3 minutes means that each cat finishes one rat in 3 minutes. 100 cats would be able to eat 100 rats in 3 minutes, as long as they don't get sidetracked into fighting or mating that is.

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.

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.

Not all cats will easily catch rats. Some cats will catch rats even though they are fast to run and hide. A cat has hunter instincts and will hunt their prey, they will stalk the prey until they catch it. Many cats will not go after animals like rats that can harm them.

1 cat catches 1 rat every 5 minutes. 1 cat catches 20 rats in 100 minutes. Therefore 5 cats would catch 100 rats in 100 minutes. C=Cat R=Rat M=Minute 1C=1R in 5M 5C=5R in 5M 1C=20R in 100M 100M divide 20R= 5C so 5C catches 5R in 100M

In sufficient dosage, yes it can. The label on the rat poison will offer specific information on this.
