Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Think about a simpler problem. How much honey would 40,000 trips produce? What about 60,000 trips? What about 100,000 trips? You see a pattern? How much honey would 20,000 * k trips produce, if k is some random number? So how much honey would 85,000 trips produce? If you could solve the previous problem, then you’ll see the solution to the problem you asked.
