Factory P produces 20,000 bags of cement per day while factory Q produces 15,000 bags…

Factory P produces 20,000 bags of cement per day while factory Q produces 15,000 bags per day. If P reduces production by 5% and Q increases production by 5%, determine the effective loss in the number of bags produced per day by the two factories
  • A.
    250
  • B.
    750
  • C.
    1000
  • D.
    1250
Correct Answer: Option A
Explanation

P produces 20,000 bags
P reduces production by 5%
i.e. reduction = (frac{5}{100}) x (frac{20000}{1})
= 1000
Q produces 15000 bags
Q increases production by 5%
i.e. increase = (frac{5}{100}) x (frac{15000}{1})
= 750
Effective loss by the two = 1000 – 750
= 250 bags
