#### Explanation:

First let's find how many words Tim can type in a minute and how many words Justin can type in a minute:

$30 = \frac{3}{4} t \rightarrow t$ represents the number of words Tim can type in a minute

$t = 40 \rightarrow$ Tim can type 40 words per minute

$32 = \frac{4}{5} j \rightarrow j$ represents the number of words Justin can type in a minute

$j = 40 \rightarrow$ Justin can type 40 words per minute

In five minutes, Tim can type $40 \cdot 5$ words and Justin can type $40 \cdot 5$ words

$40 \cdot 5 + 40 \cdot 5$

$200 + 200$

$400$
