When she gets to the “run cable” activity, one team member tells her that in a past similar project, they ran a similar length of cable in 13 hours; another team member tells her that they can run 100 meters of cable per hour. The team will need to run a total of 1000 meters of cable. Using the analogous estimating technique, how many hours will it take the team to run the cable?10111213 Time is Up! Stay tuned!
