It takes machine A x hours to manufacture a deck of cards that machine B can manufacture in 1/x hours. If machine A operates alone for y hours and is then joined by machine B until 100 decks are finished, for how long will the two machines operate simultaneously?

100y – x/ x2 + 1

100x – y/x2 + 1

100y – x3 – x /x2 + 1

100y – x2y – y /x2 + 1

100x/ x2 + 1

It would be easier if you use () and ^ :wink:

B it is

A--> x
B--> 1/x

A working for y hrs= (1/x)y=y/x

Working Together for n time:
100=y/x+n(1/x+x)
100=y/x+n((1+x^2)/x)

Solving for n:
=(100x-y)/(1+x^2)
