Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:The daily shop productivity is 480 framesStep-by-step explanation:The daily machine productivity refers to the TOTAL production made in a day.The problem says that a shop produces metal on two different machines. It means that you must take into account the daily production of each one for finding the total production.The first machine produces 300 frames in a day.The second machine produces 180 frames in a day too.So, if the first and the second machines are working together in a single day, the TOTAL daily production is the sum of the production of each one.[tex]production=300+180=480[/tex]Thus, the daily shop productivity is 480 frames
