Imagination Ink supplies different colored inks for highlighter pens. Vat 1 has yellow ink, holds 150 gallons and is 4/5 full. Vat 2 has green ink, holds 50 gallons, and is 5/8 full. One gallon of ink will fill 1,200 pens. How many pens can be filled with the existing ink in Vat 1 and Vat 2?
My teacher gave the answer and it is 181,500 pens. I just don't understand how he got that answer. Can someone help me please?
Thanks in advance!
Vat1:150 gallons 4/5 full
Vat2:50 gallons 5/8 full
each gallon fill 1200 pen so if I ask you 150 gallon how many pen produce ??
(1200)(150) right.... but what ??
4/5 is full from the pens produced so
it is the same for the other Vat do the same thing then find the sum of the produced pen from two Vat try it I try and I find the answer
