- A professor who teaches class that includes 34 students (in a lecture hall with 34 chairs) gives the first midterm. As each student hands in their exam and leaves the room, the professor records how many minutes it took the student to complete the exam. The professor thus records,
**in minutes**, the amount of time they take to complete the test. (6 points)
