In an hour, 1020 pages are produced. Hence, we will have 17 pages in a minute.

The pages produced are 20(100%) and 3(15%) of the pages are unusable.(Option B)

Lets consider 100 pages per minute
thus 85 are usable and 15 are unusable
1020/60 = 17 pages per minute
85-15
17-x
x=3
unusable pages = 3
total pages = 17+3 = 20

If we need 1,020 pages in an hour:

1. 15% of the TOTAL number of pages produced that hour will be defective, so 1,020 = 85% of that total (x)

2. 1,020 = .85x ==>

x = 1200 pages needed total in one hour

3. Convert to per minute:

1200 / 60 (mins in an hour) =

20 pages per minute

Answer B
