Hi

Just chanced upon this wonderful website!

Can someone please help me out with this question? Thks


Machine A and B each printed a fixed number of newspapers per hour.
Machine B started printing earlier at a rate of 75 copies per hour.
After Machine B had printed for 10 hours, Machine A had printed 340 copies.
After Machine B had printed 16 hours, Machine A had printed 886 copies.

a. How many copies of newspapers did Machine A print per hour?

b. How long would Machine B have worked when both machines have printed a total of 2750 copies?

Ans: a. 91 copies per hour
b. 20 hours

Thank you!!

Hi,

Below are my workings, hope its helpful.

MA: Machine A
MB: Machine B

(a) MA: at the 10th hour, MA printed 340 copies.
at the 16th hour, MA printed 886 copies
so, within 6 hours, MA printed 886-340=546 copies
546 / 6 = 91 copies

Ans: MA printed 91 copies per hour.

(b) If both MA and MB work together, they can print 75+91=166 per hour.

At the 16th hour, MA and MB printed a total of (16x75) + 886 = 2086 copies

2750 - 2086 = 664
664 / 166 = 4 hours

4 hours + 16 hours = 20 hours

Ans: 20 hours.
