    Answer:

    A sloth can move 600 units in 90 minutes.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The problem says that if you divide 250 in \frac{5}{8} you obtain how far a sloth move in one hour, then:

    250:\frac{5}{8}=\frac{250.8}{5}= \frac{2000}{5}=400

    A sloth moves 400 units in one hour (60 minutes).

    We can use a rule of three,

    400 units ⇒ 60 minutes

    x               ⇒ 90 minutes

    x=\frac{90.400}{60} \\\\x=\frac{36000}{60}\\\\x=600

    A sloth can move 600 units in 90 minutes.

    Given condition is:

    A sloth moves in one hour = \frac{250}{5/8}

    \frac{5}{8}=0.625

    So, a sloth moves in one hour = \frac{250}{0.625}=400 units

    Hence, in 60 minutes a sloth moves = 400

    In 1 minute sloth will move = \frac{400}{60}

    In 90 minutes it will  move = \frac{400}{60}\times90=600

    The answer is 600 units.
