Robert can paint a certain wall in 8 minutes, while it takes Jack 24 minutes to paint the same wall. How long will it take Robert and Jack to paint the wall working together?

Answers

6 minutes You can get this by setting up the equation: x/8 + x/24 = 1 Where x is equal to the amount of hours spent working. In this equation x/8 would be the first. In 8 hours he would paint on room. x/24 would be the second. When you add them together using common denominators, you can find x.
