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?‚Äč

 

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
