How many bananas would one chimp eat in 8 minutes?

If the answer is x, then you would need 21 divide by x to get to the answer to this question.

If it helps:
The same two monkeys will eat 6 bananas in 8 minutes.
Which means 1 monkey will eat 3 bananas in 8 minutes.
Hence,we need 7 monkeys to eat 21 bananas in 8 minutes
