1. Hockey is an 11-a-side game, but a team may consist of up to 16 players, with unlimited
substitutions allowed throughout a match of 70 minutes duration.
Roger captains the Buccaneers hockey team. He has 16 players for today's match. He
will play the whole match himself, as will the goalkeeper. He intends to rotate all the
others in such a way that each of them spends the same total amount of time on the
pitch.
How much time should each player (except Roger and the goalkeeper) spend on the pitch
during today's match?
A 39 3/8 minutes
B 45 minutes
C 46 2/3 minutes
D 48 1/8 minutes
E 55 minutes

The correct answer is C, but why ?? Thank you
2. As it's 11 a side, but 2 players remain at all times; that leaves 9 players. 70 divided by 14 (16-2) means 5 mins each. 5 x 9 = 45 mins. The correct answer is actually B.
