\(2\) artisans can produce \(10\) sets of silverware in \(1\) hour.

\(2\) artisans \(= 1\) hr \(= 10\) sets

Therefore \(1\) artisan can produce \(5\) sets of silverware in \(1\) hour.

\(1\) artisan \(= 1\) hr \(= 5\) sets

\(6\) artisans can produce sets of silverware in \(1\) hour;

\(6\) artisans \(= 1\) hr \(= 6*5 = 30\) sets

\(6\) artisans can produce sets of silverware in \(5\) hours;

\(6\) artisans \(= 5\) hr \(= 30*5 = 150\) sets.

2 * r * 1 = 10 sets (work)

Hence rate of each artisan is \(\frac{10}{(2*1)}\) = 5 (sets in one hour)

Six artisans in five hours at that rate will produce 6*5*5 = 150 sets

Answer E

We are given that the rate of 2 artisans is 10 sets of silverware per hour. We can create the following proportion to determine the rate of 6 artisans:

10/2 = r/6

5 = r/6

30 = r

The rate of the 6 artisans is 30 sets per hour. Thus, those 6 artisans can produce 30 x 5 = 150 sets of silverware in 5 hours.

Answer: E
