20 Copies = 1 Min
1 Copy = 1 / 20 Min

Therefore,
4800 Copies = 4800 / 20 Min
4800 Copies = 240 Min = 240 / 60 Hrs = 4 Hrs

Hence, A.

If the copy machine can make 20 copies of a one-page document per minute, then it can make 20 x 60 = 1,200 copies per hour. So it will take 4,800/1,200 = 4 hours to make 4,800 copies.

Answer: A

The efficiency of the machine per hour is \(20*60 = 1200\)

So, To produce \(4800\) copies time required is \(\frac{4800}{1200} = 4\) Hours, Answer must be (A)

20 copies in 60 seconconds

20/60=3 seconds per 1 copy
4,800 copies * 3seconds= 14400 seconds
14400/per 60=240 minutes
240 minutes/60=4 hours

Copy machine makes 20 copies=1 min
So, 4800 copies=4800/20= 240 mins

240 mins=240/60 = 4 hrs
