Vincent took 1 1/2 times as long as Marcus to finish a school project. If it took them 30 days in total, how much longer did it take Vincent to complete his work?

Thank you

**DrBob222**, Friday, November 27, 2009 at 5:38pmLet x = time it takes Marcus, then

1.5x = time it takes Vincent.

The total is 30 days; therefore,

x + 1.5x = 30.

Solve for x = M

1.5 x = V.
