16 were defective in 3256

1 were defective in 3256/16

36 were defective in 3256*36/15 = 7326

C is our answer

defective rate per total : 3256/16
= 203.5
so for 36 defective widgets = 203.5*36= 7326 would have to be produced option C

For every 3256 widgets -> 16 are defective.

So for 36 widgets to be defective, the no. of widgets to be produced are

\(\frac{36*3256}{16}\)

= 7326

OPTION: C
