    1,440 bottles will be packed in an hour

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Firstly, we need to calculate the Amount of Distance the conveyor belt will move in an hour.

    Now the speed with which it moves is 2 feet per seconds. We calculate the number of seconds in a hour = 60 * 60 = 3600 seconds. The total distance is thus 3,600 * 2 = 7,200 ft

    Now, to calculate the number of bottles to be packed in an hour, we simply divide the total distance covered by the distance between the bottles = 7,200/5 = 1,440 bottles
