1. Today, your paint line must produce 4500 gallons of beige paint. Your four step manufacturing process has the following scrap rates for the corresponding step: Step 1: 0.6% Step 2: 1.0% Step 3: 1.3% Step 4: 1.3% How many gallons of paint must you start with to have 4500 gallons of point that can be sold? i would like to know the steps on how to answer it?

Let the initial gallons be X.

SO after first step it would be 0.994 X (removing scrap).

So final requirement = 4500


0.994*.99*.987*.987 X = 4500

X = 4694.14 gallons of paint.
