Solution

Let the number of bottles filled by the machine in five hours be x.

The given information in the form of a table is as follows.

Number of bottles 840 x
Time taken (in hours) 6

The number of bottles and the time taken to fill these bottles are in direct proportion. Therefore, we obtain

`840/6 = x/5`

x = `(840 xx 5)/6 = 700`

Thus, 700 bottles will be filled in 5 hours.
