A factory has two assembly lines, M and N, that make the same toy. On Monday, only assembly line M was functioning, and it made 900 toys.
On Tuesday, both assembly lines were functioning for the same amount of time. Line M made 300 toys per hour and line N made 480 toys per hour. Line N made as many toys on Tuesday as line M did over both days. Write an equation that can be used to find the number of hours, t , that the assembly lines were functioning on Tuesday.
On Monday
Line M made 900 toys On Tuesday Line M made 300 per hour Line N made 480 per hour 480t = 300t + 900 {line N made as many on Tuesday as line M over both days} 180t = 900 {subtracted 300t from each side} t = 5 {divided each side by 180} 5 hours Ask the House
