I smell work

In 1 hr, Henry makes 20/(h) tees
In 1 hr, Harrison makes 20/(h-2) tees

We need h

Together,
20/(h-2) + 20/h = 25/3
solve for h we get, h=6 and h=1.2

Since 6 is one of the answer choices, i'll stop here!

6
combined time taken for 20 tees = 3*20/25=12/5

let He is the time for Hennery
Ha Harrison

He = Ha +2

He*Ha/(He+Ha)=12/5

He(He-2)/(2He-2)=12/5

solve for He = 6
