Work done by Daniel in 1 hour = \(\frac{1}{9}\)

Work done by Mark in 1 hour = \(\frac{1}{6}\)

Together work done = \(\frac{1}{9}\) + \(\frac{1}{6}\)

= \(\frac{5}{18}\)

This is work done in 1 hour. So they can complete the work in \(\frac{18}{5}\) hours or 216 minutes or 3 hours 36 minutes.

OPTION: B

If it takes Daniel 9 hours to clean an office building and it takes Mark 6 hours, how long would it take the two of them, working together, to clean the building?

A. 3 hours
B. 3 hours 36 minutes
C. 4 hours 45 minutes
D. 6 hours
E. 7 hours 30 minutes


combined hours :1/9+1/6
= 54/15
or 54*60/15= 216 minutes or 180 + 36 mins or 3 hrs and 36 mins option B

Total time = (A)(B)/(A+B)......where A & B are times.


Total time = 54/15 =3.something........only one answer fits
