Seven workers from the first group have to pan out 100 tons of auriferous ore. The second group consists of four workers, two apprentices, and one master who work 1/3 and 1┬╜ as fast as does a worker accordingly. The second group has to pan out the same pile of ore. Find a ratio of the time that the first group needs to have the work done to the time that the second group needs.
