Q:
# if a fourth plant produces 400 widgets in 60 days, which statement is true?

Accepted Solution

A:

the complete question in the attached figure

the statements are

1) It makes less than plant B

2) It makes the same as plant A

3) It makes more than plant C

we know that

analyzing the graph

plant A

for x=40 y=100

for x=50 y=200

that means

the production in 10 days is 100 widgets

then

the production in 60 days will be 6*100----> 600 widgets

so

plant A production > plant fourth production

plant fourth production < plant A production

plant B

for x=40 y=0

for x=60 y=100

that means

the production in 20 days is 100 widgets

then

the production in 60 days will be 3*100----> 300 widgets

so

plant B production < plant fourth production

plant fourth production > plant B production

plant C

for x=20 y=0

for x=40 y=100

that means

the production in 20 days is 100 widgets

then

the production in 60 days will be 3*100----> 300 widgets

plant C production < plant fourth production

or

plant fourth production > plant C production

therefore

the answer is

3) It makes more than plant C

the statements are

1) It makes less than plant B

2) It makes the same as plant A

3) It makes more than plant C

we know that

analyzing the graph

plant A

for x=40 y=100

for x=50 y=200

that means

the production in 10 days is 100 widgets

then

the production in 60 days will be 6*100----> 600 widgets

so

plant A production > plant fourth production

plant fourth production < plant A production

plant B

for x=40 y=0

for x=60 y=100

that means

the production in 20 days is 100 widgets

then

the production in 60 days will be 3*100----> 300 widgets

so

plant B production < plant fourth production

plant fourth production > plant B production

plant C

for x=20 y=0

for x=40 y=100

that means

the production in 20 days is 100 widgets

then

the production in 60 days will be 3*100----> 300 widgets

plant C production < plant fourth production

or

plant fourth production > plant C production

therefore

the answer is

3) It makes more than plant C
