frank can wash the car in 2/3 the time his younger brother,joe,can wash the car.they worked together and washed the car in 40 minutes.how long would it have taken each boy working separately?

  • algebra - ,

    X min. = Joe's time.
    2x/3 = Frank's time.

    1/x + 3/2x = 1/40
    Multiply both sides by 2x:
    2 + 3 = x/20
    x/20 = 5
    X = 100 min. = Joe's time.
    2x/3=200/3 = 66.67 min. = Frank's time.
