An ice cream factory makes 29 quarts of ice cream in 5 hours. How many quarts could be made in 48 hours ? What was that rate per day

Accepted Solution

We can easily get the quarts per hour rate by dividing the number of quarts by the number of hours:[tex]\text{29 quarts in 5 hours} \implies \dfrac{29}{5} = 5.8 \text{ quarts in 1 hour}[/tex]Now that we have the quarts per hour rate, we can easily address the question: the factory could make[tex]5.8\cdot 48 = 278.4[/tex]quarts in 48 hours, with a daily rate of[tex]5.8\cdot 24 = 139.2[/tex]quarts per day
