If 2 monkeys will eat 4 bananas between them in 5 minutes how many monkeys would eat forty bananas in ten minutes?

Ten. One monkey will eat 2 bananas in 5 minutes, so it will eat 4 bananas in 10 minutes. Therefore, 40 divided by 4 will give you the number of monkeys that can eat 40 bananas in 10 minutes - if they all eat consistently at the same rate.
