Q4. A machine in a soft drink factory fills 840 bottles in six hours. How many bottles will it fill in five hours?
Given that a machine is capable of filling 840 bottles in 6 hours. So, we can say that it is directly proportional to the time.
we can assume that bottles it will fill in five hours would be 'x'
So we got the relation; ,
solving for x we will get or .
Machine will fill 700 bottles in 5 hours.
