**Reiny**, Thursday, April 25, 2013 at 7:51amrate of 1st person = 25/4 ft^2/h

rate of 2nd person = 25/5 ft^2/h

combined rate = (25/4+25/5) or 45/4 ft^2/h

so area in 8 hrs = 8(45/4) ft^2

= 90 ft^2

or

1st person can do 25 fT2 in 4 hrs, so he can do 50 ft^2 in 8 hrs

2nd person does 25/5 or 5 ft^2 in 1 hour , so in 8 hours he does 40 ft^2

50+40 = 90
