Machine J runs at a constant rate and produces a lot consisting of 300 bottles in 4 hours. How much less time would it take to produce the lot of bottles if both machines J and P were run simultaneously?

(1) Machine J can only produce a maximum of 10 lots per day.
(2) Machine J produces twice the number of bottles per hour as machine P.

Machine J runs at a constant rate and produces a lot consisting of 300 bottles in 4 hours. How much less time would it take to produce the lot of bottles if both machines J and P were run simultaneously?

To solve this we need 1 piece of Information:

(i) The rate at which Machine P produces the bottles.

Statement (1) gives no information on the Rate of Machine P, hence is insufficient.

(2) Machine J produces twice the number of bottles per hour as machine P.

Statement (2) tells us that the Rate at which machine P produces bottle is half the rate at which machine J produces. Since this statement gives the information we are looking for, hence is sufficient.

Answer is B.

Answer is B.

From statement 1) we can consider that Machine J produces 3000 bottles in 24 Hrs right? So, I think even Statement 1) would be suffice to answer the question Can you shed some light on my assumption?

The question stem asks for "How much less time would it take to produce the lot of bottles if both machines J and P were run simultaneously?"

Statement 1 does not give any information on Machine P.

Does it help?

1 - We do not know anything about Machine P so we can not answer the question - Insufficient
2 - We were told that machine J runs at a constant rate and produces a lot consisting of 300 bottles in 4 hours. Therefore, if we have information on Machine J and Machine P, we would be able to find out how much less time would it take to produce the lot of bottles if both machines J and P were run simultaneously - Sufficient

Both Machine J and P are run simultaneously.

1) Insufficient - The statement does not provide any information about Machine P. We are not able to solve the problem.
2) Sufficient - We are given Machine J produces 300 bottles/4 hours, which is enough information to calculate the rate (75 bottles / Hr). Machine P produces half the amount of bottles per hour as Machine J (~37 bottles). Working together, Machine J and P produce 113 bottles/ Hr, compared to Machine J alone 75 bottles / Hr.

In Statement 2, we have enough information to conclude a time difference to produce the lot of 300 bottles when Machine J and Machine P are working together, compared to Machine J alone. The answer is B.

1. No information on P. NS clearly.
2. It gives exact rate of P. Suff.
