# It took 20 minutes to print out a 250-page report. At this speed, how many pages could this printer produce in 30 minutes?

Dec 27, 2016

The printer could produce 375 pages in 30 minutes.

#### Explanation:

Set up a proportion.

frac(20" min")(250" pages")=frac(30" min")(x" pages")

Cross multiply

$20 x = 30 \cdot 250$

$20 x = 7500$

$\frac{20 x}{20} = \frac{7500}{20}$

$x = 375 \text{ pages}$
