There are two people in this problem and both of them get time for playing if they complete the homeworks in their allotted time.

Taking the first instance of Jonathan

For every 5 hours of doing homework, the number of hours Jonathan

gets for playing video games = 3 hours

Then

For every 1 hour of doing homework, the number of hours Jonathan

gets for playing video games = (3/5) * 1 hours

= 3/5 hours

= 0.6 hours

= (0.6 * 60) minutes

= 36 minutes

Taking the second instance of Lucas

For every 1 hour of doing homework, the number of minutes Lucas

gets for playing video games = 30 minutes

Then we can easily say that if both Jonathan and Lucas spend the same amount of time doing homework, then Jonathan gets more playing time than Lucas.
