Agent Hunt transferred classified files from the CIA mainframe onto his flash drive. The drive had some files on it before the transfer, and the transfer happened at a rate of 4.4megabytes per second. After 32 seconds, there were 384 megabytes on the drive. The drive had a maximum capacity of 1000 megabytes.

 

How long from the time that Agent Hunt started the transfer did it take the drive to be completely full?​

 

it was 243.2 megabytes full when it started, or 24.32% full.

We need to  solve this :

 

Beginning amount  +  amountt filled per second  = 1000

 

243.2  + 4.4 t   = 1000      subtract 243.2 from both sides

 

4.4 t   =  756.8   divide both sides by 4.4

 

t  = 756.8 / 4.4  =   172

 

It took 172 seconds to fill the drive
