1 machine drills 30 holes in 8 minutes 1 machine drills 300 holes in 80 minutes. 80 minutes = \(1\frac{1}{3}\) hours 4 machines drill 300*4 = 1200 holes in 80 minutes Hence option D = 1200 is the answer.

Rate of one machine is \(\frac{(30 holes)}{(8 mins)}\) therefore, Rate of 4 machines is \(\frac{4 * (30 holes)}{(8 min)}\) = \(\frac{15 holes}{min}\) therefore total number of holes in \(\frac{4}{3} *60 mins\) = \(15 * 80\) = 1200 Answer is D

(A) 300 (B) 900 (C) 960 (D) 1,200 (E) 2,560 First of, \(1\frac{1}{3}\) = 60 + 1/3*60 = 80 minutes
1 machine  8 minutes  30 holes (Rate = 30/8 holes per minute)
4 machines  80 minutes  30/8*80*4 holes
1200 (D)

(A) 300 (B) 900 (C) 960 (D) 1,200 (E) 2,560 The rate of one machine is 30/8 = 15/4 holes per minute, so the rate of 4 machines is 4 x 15/4 = 15 holes per minute. Since 1 1/3 hours = 80 minutes, the 4 machines can drill 15 x 80 = 1200 holes. Answer: D

A machine drills hole per min= 30/8 (holes/min) In 4/3 hours= 80 mins=30*80/8= 300 holes
So, 4 machines drill holes in 4/3 hrs= 300*4= 1200 holes
(D)
