    12 more trucks

    Step-by-step explanation:

    316 packet per trip

    12 trips

    So,

    total packet per truck (in 12 trips) = 12 * 316 = 3792

    SO, 6 trucks would transport (packets) = 6 * 3792 = 22,752 packets (total)

    We need total 22,752 packets to be delivered in 4 trips only!

    We can say:

    Number of Trucks * Number of Trips * 316 packet = 22,752

    Number of Trips is 4, so we have:

    Number of Trucks * 4 * 316 = 22,752

    SO,

    Number of trucks * 1264 = 22,752

    Number of trucks = 22,752/1264 = 18 trucks

    We need to know HOW MANY MORE trucks (from 6), so that would be:

    18 - 6 = 12 more trucks
