# For each hook-up (figure c), 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 = (× 2²) × (× (1/3)³) × (× 5⁴)

= 2³ × 1/3³ × 5⁴

We know, 2³ = 8 and 5⁴ = 625

Also, 3³ = 27

= 8 × 1/27 × 625

= 5000/27

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