This is a simple algebra problem  actually two problems as you have two situations. However, you might consider that paint has to dry a certain number of hours before a second (usually required) coat should be put on. So ask this another way  if a room takes four hours to paint and five hours to dry before putting on the second coat and the worker takes an hour for meals every six hours, how many rooms could be painted in 24 hours?
