factory. The assembly line that he monitors produces about 20,000 bottles in a24-hour period. Julio samples about 120 bottles an hour and rejects the line if he finds more than 1/50 of the sample to be defective. About how many defective

bottles should Julio allow before rejecting the entire line?

I think this is a division problem and how would I start this?

**Ms. Sue**, Friday, July 31, 2009 at 9:13pmYes. In this kind of construction, a fraction of something is a multiplication problem.

Think of 1/2 of 10. You know it's 5.

1/2 * 10 = 10/2 = 5
