guys this is how i got to solve the above problem;i found at the rate at which the machine produces a bottle in the said minutes hence c/m.time eqauls work done over rate;in that case,b/c/60m=60bm/c...following my algorithm,i got option A for an answer yet the problem holds B for an answer.what could possibly go wrong?

A machine puts c caps in m minutes per bottle. How many hours will it take to put caps on b bottles?

I think this wording is more clear

Cheers

Hi there,

IMHO the wording is already clear since 1 cap can be per bottle only it cannot be the case that 3 caps are on 1 bottle.

'C' Caps ---> 'm' minutes

1 Cap/bottle ---> m/c minutes

b bottle ---> mb/c minutes

mb/60 c
