**drwls**, Monday, January 18, 2010 at 8:10pmLet Jay's lawn mowing rate be J lawns per hour. Marks rate is 2J per lawns per hour.

To do one lawn

4 hours = 1/(J + 2J) = 1/(3J)

J = 1/12 lawn per hour

(Jay would need 12 hours to do the lawn)

Mark's rate is 1/6 lawn/hour, so one lawn would take him 6 hours.
