I have a very generic doubt regarding statement 2 ONLY.

if I write an equation in rates form I get the solution :

1/j+2/t = 1/3; when I solve this with the problem statement->

1/j+1/t=1/4; it gives T=12,J=6.perfect.

Doubt :

If I write an equation in time form I get the solution:

statement 2->If Tom painted twice as fast as he actually does, the brothers would finish the work in 3 hours.->therefore tom would take half the time than he normally does T=.5T.

J+0.5T = 3

from problem statement :

J+T=4.

SOlving these we get T=2, which is wrong. Can someone help me with this ?
