(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A ) A company produces microchips. It has some in storage and produces 34 an hour. After 1 hour it has a total of 3428 microchips

i) How many chips will the company have a week later, assuming the production continues 24 hours a day?

ii)An order is put in for 13,526 chips. In days and hours, how long will it take before the order can be met?

3. The attempt at a solution

i) a= 3428-34= 3396

d= 34

n= 1 week time = 604800

1 week

60.60.24.7=604800

Un=a+(n-1)d

Un=3396+ (604799.34)

= 20566596

ii) Is it? 20566596/13526 = 1520 1 day
