1. Do you usually set up two equations in two unknowns for this ? Or work at it with proportional reasoning? Both methods are valid : )

2. (1200/2400) * 1h = 0.5h = 30 min. to print 1200 black-and -white posters,
50 - 30 = 20 min. to print 500 colored posters,
(60min/20min) * 500 = 1500 colored posters in 1 hour.
