The Mayflower

The Mayflower traveled for 66 days on the trip from England to America. The weather was storming for many days of their trip. If one and a half of the days at Sea where Sunny with good weather, 1/6 of the days were sunny but very windy and the other days restore me. How many days of Stormy weather did the pilgrims experience on their trip?

Result

s =  22

Solution:

f=11/21/6=130.3333 s=66 f=66 0.3333=22f=1-1/2-1/6=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 3 } \doteq 0.3333 \ \\ s=66 \cdot \ f=66 \cdot \ 0.3333=22
