A machine in a soft drink factory fills 840 bottles in six hours. How many bottles will it fill in five hours?


Let the number of bottles filled = n

Number of bottles 840 a
Time in hours 06 5

The ratio of hours and bottles are in direct proportion.

Considering the time taken to fill the bottles is directly proportional to the number of bottles filled,

So, 840/6 = a/5

a = (840 × 5)/6

a = 700


Hence, 700 bottles will be filled in 5 hours.
