Answer:it would take 65 hours to produce all of the order.

Step-by-step explanation:1. you already would figure out that 26 hours=4 cases or 6.5 hours per case of hairbrushes.

2. You would figure out that 26+26 is 52 so 52 hours for 8 cases

3. Then you remember u have 8 cases of hairbrushes now. Set up a mental equation where you can solve in your mind: if I need 10 cases, but have figured out I only calculated 8, how much more would I still need to meet the order?

4. After mentally solving the hypothetical problem, you then would conclude you needed 2 more cases from 8 to equal 10.

5. you then divide 26 hours per 4 cases and you get 13 hours for 2 cases.

6. finally you multiply 26+26+13 which you would get 65 as the answer
