ANSWER B.

One of the most useful equations in the hvac industry is: BTU = CFM X 1.1 X TD.  This equation can be flipped arround to CFM = BTU/1.1 X TD or TD = BTU/1.1 X CFM. TD may be temperature difference or temperature rise (TR). You will likely need a variation of this equation to answer some exam questions.

To solve the above problem use the equation CFM = BTU/1.1 x TD

Where BTU is the output of the furnace. The furnace is rated 75,000 btuh. However, since it is 85% efficient, the net output is 75,000 X .80 = 60,000 btuh output.

Now apply the equation, CFM =  BTUH/ 1.1 x td

CFM = 60,000/1.1 X 45 = 1212 CFM
