Question:

8 printing machines are used to print the same number of copies of magazines everyday. When 2 of the machines broke down, each if the remaining ones printed 2400 more copies. How many copies of magazines are to be printed everyday?



Answer:

The problem statement is somewhat ambiguous.

For example, when 2 of the machines broke down, each of the six working machines printed 2400 more copies.

The phrase “more copies” is not explained? More than they ordinarily print (normal daily printing + 2400 per machine)? An additional day’s production at the normal printing rate (2400 per machine) ?

You can only conjecture that each of the 8 machines normally prints 2400 magazines daily.


Together, 8 printing machines print a total of: 8 * 2400 = 19,200 magazines daily


On this basis, the final answer is: 19,200 magazines printed daily


Thanks for writing.
