Q:
# A bottling machine can fill 300 bottles in 5 minutes. At this rate how many bottles can be filled in 8 minutes?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:480 bottlesStep-by-step explanation:To find the rate of change of bottles being filled per minute, just divide 300 by 5 to get 60 bottles. We already know there was 300 bottles filled in 5 minutes, so for 8 minutes we need to add 3 more. So 3 x 60 = 180 more bottles. 300 + 180 = 480 total bottles filled in 8 minutes.
