1. Two children are swinging on swings side by side. One completes 20 cycles in 1.0 min while the other completes 26 cycles in 1.0 min. If they start out together, how many additional times will they be swinging together during that minute? Explain.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2. The attempt at a solution

f=N/t

f1=20/60

=.333

f2=26/60

=.433

B.F=f2-f1

=.433-.333

=.1

.1=N/60

N=6 times

the answer is correct, but i was wondering whether the way i calculated it was the proper method.

thanks in advance.
