**bobpursley**, Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 11:44amjohn rate= job/7hrs

mary rate=job/5 hrs

combined rate= job/7hrs+job/5hrs= (5+7)/35= 10/35 job/hr

so, time= howmuch/rate= 1job/(10jobs/35hrs)= 3.5 hrs

The 3.5 hours caught my eye, because that would be the time taken by 2 people who take 7 hours each.
