Machine A: x(minutes)   y(candies)   5                     600 10                  1200 15                  1800 20                   2400 Machine B: y = 150x Machine A: 600 / 5 = 120 candies per minute 120 cpm x 12 minutes = 1440    Machine B: y = 150x  150 cpm x 12 minutes = 1800 1800 - 1440 = 360 candies more for Machine B.
