# For each hook-up (figure b), determine whether there is a single repeater machine that will do the same work. If so, describe or draw it.

**Solution:**

Given, the figure represents the work done by each hook-up.

We have to find a single repeater machine.

A repeater machine is a hypothetical machine which automatically enlarges items several times.

We know that, when two machines are hooked up their stretching power is multiplied.

Stretching power = (× 2³) × (× 3²)

= 2³ × 3²

We know, 2³ = 8

Also, 3² = 9

= 8 × 9

= 72

Therefore, there is no single repeater machine that will do the same work.

**✦ Try This: **For each hook-up, determine whether there is a single repeater machine that will do the same work. If so, describe or draw it.
