**Damon**, Tuesday, August 2, 2011 at 8:25pmPump 1 does (1/5) pool/day

pump 2 does (1/7) pool/day

together they do (1/5)+(1/7) pool/day

that is

7/35 + 5/35 = 12/35 pool/day

so it will take 35/12 = 2.92 days/pool

**Reiny**, Tuesday, August 2, 2011 at 8:26pmrate of 1st pump = pool/5

rate of 2nd pump = poo/7

combined rate = pool/5 + pool/7 = (12/35)pool

time at combined rate = pool / ((12/35)pool) = 35/12 or 2.916667

it will take about 2.92 hours or 2hrs, 55 minutes
