There are 420 batteries in 14 packages.

#### Explanation:

A formula for this problem can be:

$T = p \times b$

Where $T$ is the total number of batteries, $p$ is the number of packages and $b$ is the number of batteries in each package.

For this problem we are give $p$ as 14 packages and $b$ as 30 batteries per package. We can substitute these into the formula to calculate the total number of batteries.

$T = 14 \times 30$

$T = 420$
