in 2 hours, they can fill 2(1/10 + 1/8) = 9/20 of the pool. So, at 1/10 pool/hr, A takes an additional (11/20) / (1/10) = 11/2 hours

I understand the question to mean that the difference in attendance was at least 16,600, so I'd write it as x-809,300 >= 16,700 x >= 826,000 Note that "at least" means greater or equal, not just greater.
