Which way is that?

Is "way" supposed to be "wall"?

<<How many walls do both employees paint together? >>

In how many days?

It's supposed to be wall and how many walls they can paint in 1 day.

**drwls**, Thursday, August 25, 2011 at 7:12amA paints one wall a day. You said that already.

B, who is twice as fast, could paint two walls in an (eight hour) day, but he only works six hours. Therefore B paints 1.5 walls in an eight hour day.

Together that paint 2.5 walls per day.
