    Answer:

    Jenny will knit 8 inches per each hour.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First I know that 1 foot is 12 inches.

    1/3 of 13 is 4.

    1 hour is 60 minutes.

    2/3 of 60 is 40.

    so she knits 4 inches in 40 minutes.

    We will now add 1/3 to both to see how many inches/feet she knits per hour/60 minutes.

    Adding 1/3 to 2/3 of an hour will look like:

    \frac{20}{60} +\frac{40}{60}

    That equals 60/60 which is 1 hour.

    Adding 1/3 to 1/3 of a foot will look like:

    \frac{4}{12}+ \frac{4}{12}

    That equals 8/12, which is 8 inches in a foot.

    This means that in one hour, Jenny will knit 8 inches of a foot.
