There are some hints that make me suspicious, but I can't solve it:

xt=2w with t=?

1)
x(t+2)= w
and
y(t)=w
or
x(t+2) + y(t) = 2w
or
t(x+y)=2(w-x)

2)
(1/x + 1/y) * 4w/3 = 4/3w
=
1/x + 1/y = 1/(w^2)
=
w^2= xy/(x+y)
or
x+y=xy/(w^2)


No way, E

1) x(t+2)=w
thus yt=w

xt+2x=yt
2x=t(y-x)

2) (1/x+1/y) 4w/3=4/3w

x+y/xy*4w/3=4/3w


again i am stuck here... so in exam i wld pick E

1) Insufficient. We do not kow how long y takes.
2) Working together -> 4/3w products in 4w/3 hours -> so w products will take:

3/4 * 4w/3 = w hours

But that is all we know. Insufficient.

Using 1) and 2),
Assuming x took x hours to make w products, then y will take x-2 hours

x + x-2 = w
2x = w+2

We still have no number. Insufficient.

Ans E
