clearly not just the average, since that would be 5.5, or slower than Holly by herself. You have to consider how much works gets done in 1 hour by each person. Then you can add that up to see how much gets done together. 1/5 + 1/6 = 11/30 so, the paper takes 30/11 hours for ...

I assume you mean y = [x^2 e^(2x)]/ [3√(2x-5)] ln y = 2lnx + 2x - 3/2 ln(2x-5) 1/y y' = 2/x + 2 - 3/(2x-5) 1/y y' = (4x^2-9x-10)/[x(2x-5)] y' = [x^2 e^(2x)]/ [3√(2x-5)] * (4x^2-9x-10)/[x(2x-5)] x e^(2x) (4x^2-7x-10) ----------------------------  &...
