A machine in a soft drink factory fills 840 bottles in six hours. How many bottles will it fill in five hours?

The given information in the form of table is as follows:

bottles | 840 | x |

hours | 6 | 5 |

Let x be the no of bottles filled in 5 hours.

The no of bottles and no of hours are in direct proportion.

Therefore,

840/6 = x/5

→x = 700

Thus, 700 bottles will be filled in 5 hours.
