Eight identical machines can produce 360 aluminum cans per hour. If all of the machines work at the same constant rate, how many cans could 5 such machines produce in 3 hours?

A. 675
B. 750
C. 1,800
D. 5,900
E. 7,500

(rate of one machine)*(number of machines)*(time)=(work done) --> (rate of one machine)*8*1=360 --> (rate of one machine)=45 cans per hour.

Now, 5 such machines in 3 hours can produce (rate of one machine)*(number of machines)*(time)=45*5*3=675 cans.

Answer: A.

Hope it's clear.

Hi, if 8 machines make 360 then 5 would make
8:360
5:x
X= 225
so in 3 hours it would be 225*3=675

8 machines/ 360 cans = 5 machines/ x cans
8x= 1800
x=225

(225)(3 hours)= 675 cans. The answer is A.

\(\frac{8}{M}=\frac{360cans}{1hr}==>\frac{1}{M} = 45cans/1hr\)

Calculate 5 machines doing work in 3 hours.
\(W=(5)(\frac{45cans}{1hr})(3hrs)==>W=675cans\)
