You manufacture 50 skis a day that are all sold to a retail store. Your capacity to produce skis is 60 skis per day. You produce skis seven days a week. You have received an additional order to supply a second retail store with 320 skis one month from today. Based on your current responsibility to the first retail store, can you satisfy this second sales order knowing the capacity of your manufacturing business?

No. You need 32 days to meet the additional order, which is slightly more than a month (30 days).Explanation:With current manufacture at 50 skis/day,and total capacity at 60 skis/day,Excess capacity = 60 - 50 = 10 skis/dayThis means in a month of 30 days (since you manufacture 7 days a week, all round), excess capacity can produce a total of 10 * 30 = 300 skis.Therefore, you will not be able to meet the additional order to supply a second retail store with 320 skis in one month from today.The number of days required to meet the order of 320 skis = = 32 days.
