.5/43=x/60

to solve for X the equation read: (I used the * as a multiplication symbol so as not to be confusing)

60/60 * .5/43 = x/60 * 60/60

30/2580 = X

3/258 = X

3/258 = .01 per minute

.04 *43 min = .43 (which is half)

.43 * 2 = .86 to be full

So, it would take 86 minutes from start to finish to be full

So, 12:00 + 86 minutes = 1:26

So, at 1:26 the dish should be full.

Any chance that is close to right?
