Ok how about this. 10 people start a job and work on a constant pace for 3 days. 5 people then leave, and the rest of the group continues working for another 2 days. Then 2 people join back and continue working for 3 days. Then the remaining 3 people join and after working for 14 days the group has completed half of the job. Since its taking so long, group A asks group B comprised of 10 people for help. Group A & B finish the job in 3 days. What is the speed of Group B?
