I think the answer should be 5 seconds.

Each robot takes 5 seconds per cup.
i.e if rate of each robot is R in cups per second
We get 5R *5 = 5 or we Get 1 cup per 5 second

Thus 25 robots working on 25 cups will take 25/(25*(1/5)) seconds i.e. 5 seconds

The rate of 5 robots is 5/5 = 1. So the rate of 25 robots is 5. So it will take 25 robots 25/5 = 5 seconds to manufacture 25 cups.

5 robs take 5 secs
this means, 1 rob will take 5 x 5 : 25 secs
thus 25 robs will take 25/25 : 1 sec
since it takes 1sec to produce 5 cups, to produce 25 cups: 25/5: 5 seconds.
E

i wonder if we can solve these questions using the ratios:

robs : Time : Qty
5 : 5 : 5
25 : ? : 25

any one?
