    Easy worded question.

    A photocopying machine is capable of making 50 copies each minute.

    If 4 identical copiers are used simultaneously how long would it take to make a total of 50 copies?

    1 machine = 50 copies/min
    so 4 machines=50*4=200/min
    Therefore 50 copies is 50/200=0.25 min or 15 seconds
