First Method : Correct

2 boys mow the lawn in 150 min .

Statement 1 : Both boys work at the same rate . Ra = Rb

Amt = 2 Ra * 150 == > Ra = Amt /300 ==>

Amt = 5 Amt /300 * t

t = 60 min = 1 hr .

Bunuel : I have 1 doubt

If the rate is same than Time is also same to do the same work .

Now in this question , why cant I say after reading the first statement , if they worked together than together they take 75 mins. (because their

combined rate is twice their individual rate).

and when 5 of them worked together than they will take 15 mins . (which i think is wrong).
