Automakers’, Inc. is a car manufacturer and currently has three operational plants cleverly named Plant A, Plant B and Plant C. Plant A can produce 100 cars a day. Plant B can produce 80 cars a day. Plant C can produce only 70 cars a day. If all three plants are running at full production capacity, how many days are needed to produce 1600 cars? ( a fraction of a day is permitted)

  1. Look at how many cars are made by all 3 plants in one day. Add up those amounts, then divide 1600 by that number. Your equation should look like this: 1600÷ (100+80+70)=Amount of days needed.
