Math - Compute Averages
by: Staff


The question:

1700 printing presses created 20 million copies of 40000 books. On Average how many volumes did each printing press create? How many volumes of each book were created?



The answer:

1700 printing presses created 20 million copies of 40000 books. On Average how many volumes did each printing press create? How many volumes of each book were created?


On Average how many volumes did each printing press create?

Number of volumes = 20 million

Number of printing presses = 1700

Average = (number of volumes)/(number of printing presses)

Average = (20,000,000 volumes)/(1700 printing presses)

Average = 11,764.70588235294 volumes per printing press

Average = 11,765 volumes per printing press, rounded to the nearest book


How many volumes of each book were created?

Number of volumes = 20 million

Number of books = 40000


Average Volumes of each book = (number of volumes)/(number of books)

Average Volumes of each book = (20,000,000 volumes)/(40000 books)

Average Volumes of each book = 500 volumes of each book



The final answers are:

Average number of books printed by each printing press = 11,765 , rounded to the nearest book

Average number of volumes of each book printed = 500
