i)       5 classes per week

5 hours per day

3 days

In each class 25 students

Number of hours = 5*3

                       =15 hours a week

Productivity = No of hours/ no of students

                       15/25= 0.6

                       Or 60%

 

ii)     3 classes per week

3 hours per day

5 days

In each class 55 students

Number of hours = 3*5

                       =15 hours a week

Productivity = No of hours/ no of students

                       15/55= 0.273

                       Or 27.3%

 

 

iii)   3 classes per week

5 hours per day

5 days

In each class 55 students

Number of hours = 5*5

                       =25 hours a week

Productivity = No of hours/ no of students

                       25/55= 0.455

It will decrease productivity from 60 % (current) to 45.5%, this is due to the increased number of students per class.
