A. 7/8 B. 3/4 C. 2/3 D. 5/8 E. 3/8" Bunuel. Can you help me in this? I tried the below way. What is wrong in that? As per the question, the Seventh marble is Red. That means any of the below combo is possible RRRRBBRB  Here  (5/8)*(4/7)*(3/6)*(2/5)*(3/4)*(2/3)*(1/2)*1  What is wrong in this approach. Kindly help?

After that A, B, and C together complete the task in 15 minutes. What is the value of x? A. 1 B. 1.25 C. 2 D. 2.5 E. 4
After 2 hours \(2*\frac{1}{10}=\frac{1}{5}\) of the taks will be done (as only A works); After 4 hours \(\frac{1}{5}+2*(\frac{1}{10}+\frac{1}{5})=\frac{4}{5}\) of the task will be done and \(\frac{1}{5}\) will be left to be done; We are told that \(\frac{1}{5}\)th of the task is done in 15 minutes (1/4th of an hour) by all three workers: \(\frac{1}{4}*(\frac{1}{10}+\frac{1}{5}+\frac{1}{x})=\frac{1}{5}\). From which we can find that \(x=2\) hours.
Answer: C How do you calculate the fact that \(\frac{4}{5}\) of the job has been completed after 4hrs? I understand why it was \(\frac{1}{5}\) after A worked in isolation for 2hrs, and I also understand how to calculate the algebra, but my issue is knowing how to set it up. I also don't quite understand how the final equation was set up (though perhaps that will become clearer once I understand how A&B were set up)

Look at option D: if y is positive, then x must be negative in order the sum of x and y to be negative.
Answer: D. Dear Bunuel, What if C. If \(y < 0\), then \(x > 0\), \(x = 12\), \(y = 24\), \(x + y = 12  24 = 12\)?
