Two machines. One makes 9,000 pencils and hour and the other makes 7,000. Each can work a maximum of 8 hours. What's the minimum amount that B (the 7,000 pencil machine) can operate?

The least amount of time would be when machine A works the full 8 hours.

9000*8 = 72,000

100,000-72,000=28,000 pencils left for B to make

28,000/7,000 = 4 hours of work for B.

Answer A
