Two factory plants are making TV panels. Yesterday, Plant A produced 
 fewer panels than Plant B did. Two percent of the panels from Plant A and 
 of the panels from Plant B were defective. How many panels did Plant B produce, if the two plants together produced 
defective panels?

number of panels produced by land B ?

Let x = # of panels produced from Plant B

Then, x - 6000 = # of panels produced from Plant A

(0.02)(x - 6000) + (0.05)x = 860

0.02x - 120 + 0.05x = 860

0.07x = 980

x = 14000
