N workers remain the same.

t min to produce 1 instrument => t/60 h to produce 1 instrument.

Instruments created in 7.5 hrs = 7.5*60 / t = 450/t

t/60 hours for 1 piece

7.5 / (t/60) is amount of pieces in 7.5 hours

So (60*7.5) n / t

450 n / t

I agree with 450/t ..it does'nt ask for each worker.. so why do u want to divide with the number of workers.. am i right.. or wrong??

Shubhangi , the question asks for the instruments assembled by all the N workers and not by an individual workers.
1 Worker will make 450/t instruments and N will make 450N/t.
