A 7/17

Take a number like 30 (total stereos)

Hence basic = 20 and deluxe = 10. If we assume 1 hour for basic it takes 1.4 hours for deluxe

Hence time for deluxe / total time = 10*1.4/(20 + 14) = 14/24 = 7/17.

Hey why don't u assume 5hrs and 7 hrs........
It will be much faster..........

20 basic 5 hrs each total 100 hrs
10 delux 7 hrs each total 70 hrs
So 70/170 i.e. 7/17

Straight A.

Plugged in 60 for total number produced...yields 40 basic and 20 deluxe. Yields 68 total hours, 28 of which are from deluxe...
