If the question had only asked the time required for J and R together to fill the order, then choice C would have been sufficient ?

If the question had only asked the time required for J and R together to fill the order, then choice C would have been sufficient ? Hello Yes i think if the question had asked time required for J/R together to fill one order, answer would have been C. Machine C fills 2 orders in 60 minutes, or 1/30 orders in one minute or 2/15 orders in 4 minutes. But since J, R, C together fill one complete order in 4 minutes, J & R complete (1  2/15) = 13/15 orders in 4 minutes. This should be able to give us the required time.

Hi Brunel, Aman.. if I follow correctly, 13/15 orders completed by j and r together in 4 mins. So, 13/60 orders completed by them in 1 min. Hence, 1 order will be completed in 60/30, that is 4.6 minutes. Please correct me if wrong.

Sent from my iPhone using GMAT Club Forum Hello Yes, I think that's correct. In 1 minute, 13/60 orders. So 1 order in 60/13 minutes or 4 8/13 minutes or 4.6 minutes

I think the no. of orders is not mentioned in the question. So we cannot really take "J, R, C together fill one complete order" Correct me if i am wrong.

Hello itisSheldon While replying to Sandy, I assumed that 'fill the order' means 'fill one order'. I personally think that when a question doesn't specify such things, then 'filling the order' would mean 'filling one order' only. Nowhere in the question was it mentioned that the word 'order' could mean 'a batch or orders' or 'a series or orders' or 'multiple orders'. That was the basis of my comment above. But I could be wrong who knows
