# 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; $\frac{840}{6}=\frac{x}{5}$ ,

solving for x we will get  $840\times 5 = 6\times x$      or   $x= \frac{840\times 5}{6}= 700$.

Machine will fill 700 bottles in 5 hours.
