At a factory, a machine fills jars with salsa. The manager of the factory is considering buying a new machine that will fill 78 jars of salsa every 3 minutes. To support his decision, he wants to compare the rate of the new machine to the rate of the old machine that is currently in the factory.
The graph below shows the number of jars of salsa filled over time with the old machine.
The manager is about to fill an order of 765 jars of salsa. How long would it take to fill this order on each machine? Should the manager consider replacing the old machine with the new one? Explain.
Kristina and her sister, Tracee, are painting rooms in their house. The graph below represents the rate at which Kristina paints, and the table below shows how many square feet Tracee painted for given amounts of time. Both sisters paint at a constant pace.
Who paints at the faster rate? Justify your answer.
