Tick (✓) the correct answer:

A machine fills 420 bottles in 3 hours. How many bottles will it fill in 5 hours?

(a) 252

(b) 700

(c) 504

(d) 300


(b) 700

Let x be the number of bottles filled in 5 hours.

No. of bottles 420 x">xx
Time (h) 3 5

More number of bottles will be filled in more time.

Now, $\frac{420}{3}=\frac{x}{5}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{420 \times 5}{3}$

$\Rightarrow x=700$

Therefore, 700 bottles would be filled in 5 h.
