The table shows the number of candies packed by Machine J. The equation shows the number of candies packed by Machine K. In both representations, x is a measure of the number of minutes and y is a measure of the number of candies packed. Machine J Candy Packing x (minutes) y (candies) 3 90 6 180 9 270 12 360 Machine K: y = 26x How many more candies could machine J pack than machine K in 11 minutes? 30 44 90 330
The correct answer in B) 44. Step by step answer: Divide 3 by 90 and you will get 30, meaning that Machine J packed 30 candies per minute. Machine K packed 26 candies per minute as it stated. In order to figure out how many more candies Machine J packed then Machine K in 11 minutes, you would need to figure out how many more candies it packed in one minute then multiply by 11. In this case Machine J packed four more then Machine K in one minute, therefore Machine J packed 44 more than Machine K in 11 minutes. Hope this helped!
