You can put this solution on YOUR website! LETS TAKE 2 AT A TIME
NOW COMBINE THIS WITH THE THE 15 MINUTE MIXER
3.33*15/3.33+15=49.95/18.33=2.73 MINUTES WHEN THEY WORK TOGETHER.
20/5=4 DRINKS PER MINUTE.
20/10=2 DRINKS PER MINUTE.
20/15=1.33 DRINKS PER MINUTE.
4+2+1.33=7.33 DRINKS PER MINUTE WHEN ALL THREE WORKING.
20/7.33=2.73 MINUTES TO MIS 20 DRINKS WORKING TOGETHER.
