    6 hours and 24 minutes.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If she can connect 5 pipes in one hour, to find out how much time it will take her to assemble 32 pipes we would have to divide the total amount of pipes by the number of pipes she can assemble in one hour.

    This equals 32/5 = 6.4

    It will take her 6.4 hours. We will transform the 0.4 into minutes.

    We know that one hour has 60 minutes. Therefore, the number of minutes in our answer would be (60) (0.4) = 24 minutes.

    It will take her 6 hours and 24 minutes.
