Machine B produces 100 parts in 40 minutes. Since Machine A is twice as fast as Machine B, then Machine A produces 100 parts in 40/2=20 minutes.

In 6 minutes Machine A produces 6/20*100 = 30 parts.

I did it this way

Machine B produces 100 part in 40 minutes. Machine A produces 100 parts twice as fast as B, so Machine A produces 100 parts in 40/2=20 minutes.

Now, Machine A produces 100 parts in 20 minutes which is 100/20 = 5 parts/minute.

5 parts X a total of 6 minutes = 30

if machine A produces the parts twice as fast as machine B does,then machine A requires half as much times as machine B does, or 20 minutes, to produce 100 parts. in 6 minutes machine A will produce
A=100/20 * 6
= 30 parts
so, the best answer is 30

Let Machine A produces 100 parts in x hours. So, Machine B produces 100 parts in 2x hours.
Now Machine B produces 100 parts in 40 hours. So, Machine A produces 100 parts in 40/2 = 20 hours.

Machine A produce in 6 minutes = 100/20 *6 = 30

Rate of Machine B:

$$\frac{100parts}{40mins}$$ = $$\frac{5parts}{2mins}$$

Rate of Machine A is twice that of B

Rate of Machine A:

$$\frac{5parts}{2mins} * 2$$ = $$\frac{10parts}{2 mins}$$

How many parts does Machine A produce in 6 minutes?

$$\frac{10parts}{2 mins}$$ = $$\frac{x}{6 mins}$$

$$2x = 60$$, $$x = 30$$

(B) 25

We can see that the rate of Machine B = 100/40 = 5/2 parts per minute. Since Machine A is twice as fast as Machine B, the rate of Machine A = 5/2 x 2 = 5 parts per minute.

Thus, in 6 minutes, Machine A can produce 5 x 6 = 30 parts.

Rate of Machine B = 100/40 = 2.5
Rate of Machine A= 2X * 2.5 = 5
Machine A can produce = 5*6 =30

Given:

Machine A produces 100 parts twice as fast as Machine B.

Since Machine B produces 100 parts in 40 minutes, Machine A produces 100 parts in 20 minutes. (Both machines produces parts at a constant rate)

Number of parts produced by Machine A in 20 minutes = 100

Number of parts produced by Machine A in 1 minute = $$\frac{100}{20}$$= 5

Number of parts produced by Machine A in 6 minutes = 6*5 = 30
