#### Candy bar boxes are packaged using two separate machines. One machine places the candy bars in the box, while the other seals it. Both machines can process 20 boxes per minute. Unfortunately, the machine responsible for sealing the boxes is malfunctioning, resulting in 15% of the boxes not being correctly sealed. On average, how long will it take the two machines to properly box and seal 750 packages of candy bars?

The correct answer is 44.

The first machine places candy bars into 18 boxes per minute, but the second machine seals only 85% (100%-15%) of them. Therefore, the total amount of properly sealed boxes is 20*0.85 = 2*10*0.85 = 2*8.5 = 17 boxes each minute, on average.

To calculate the time required for the machines to properly box and seal 750 packages of candy bars, we can use the Work-Rate formula (work=rate*time):

750=17*t

t=750/17

t=44 2⁄17 equals approximately 44 minutes.

#### Find the approximate value for the following expression: 29.8% of 260 + 60.01% of 510 − 103.57 = ?

Given
29.8% of 260 + 60.01% of 510 − 103.57 = ?

Rounding off the given Expression we get,

= ( 30 / 100 ) * 260 + ( 60 / 100 ) * 510 - ( 104 )

= 78 + 306 - 104

= 384 - 104

= 280

#### Find the approximate value for the below equation 91.01 * 111.01 / 97.99 - 108.99 + 99.01
