Problema Solution

Renee can sew a 25 square foot quilt in 16 hours. Genera can sew the same size quilt in 12 hours. How long would it take them to sew the quilt working together?

Answer provided by our tutors

let 'x' represent the time it would take them working together


1/x = 1/16 + 1/12

solving for 'x' we have x=48/7 = 6 6/7


6/7 * 60 = 51.42


working together, it would take them approximately 6 hours and 51 minutes
