- Our house

Our house would paint four painters in 14 days. How long could it paint five painters? How long will it take if two other painters will come to help after 5 days? - Digging companies

Company A would dig a pit for 12 days, company B for 15 days, company C for 20 days and the company D for 24 days. Work began together companies C and D, but after three days joined them other two companies. How long took to dig a pit? - Sprayers

The vineyard can be sprayed first sprayer in 5 hours and with the second in 8 hours. How long would it take if we use sprayers both at once? - Trucks

Truck take you the some amount of clay in 30 hours. Second truck in 40 hours. Trucks carted the clay away some time together then the second truck broke down and the first one completed the job in five hours. What time worked together? - Novak

Novak needed to dig up three of the same pit in the garden. The first pit dug father alone for 15 hours. His second dig son helped him and it did that in six hours. The third pit dug son himself. How long it took him? - Welders

Welder do the job for six hours, the second one for 8 hours. How long do the job third welder if all together can do job in 2 hours? - Pumps A and B

Pump A fill the tank for 12 minutes, pump B for 24 minutes. How long will take to fill the tank if he is only three minutes works A and then both pumps A and B? - Simple equation

Solve for x: 3(x + 2) = x - 18 - Father and son

Father is 48 years old, son 23. When will be the father twice older than a son? - Fifth of the number

The fifth of the number is by 24 less than that number. What is the number? - Equation

Solve the equation: 1/2-2/8 = 1/10; Write the result as a decimal number. - 12 Moons

Good Marry came to ask twelve moons for help with collecting strawberries. All twelve moons 1200 strawberries picked in 20 minutes. But lazy months July and August cease tear after 5 minutes. How many minutes in total will take collect strawberries? - Six years

In six years Jan will be twice as old as he was six years ago. How old is he? - Collection

John has collected half a bucket of raspberries in 45 minutes, Eva collects the whole bucket in an hour. How many minutes it would take to fill a bucket if the two children work together? - Unknown number

Identify unknown number which 1/5 is 40 greater than one tenth of that number. - Dwarfs

Four dwarfs would prepare firewood for Snow White in580 minutes. After an hour and a half they recruit friends so that finished preparing the wood for 280 minutes. How many dwarfs they recruited? - Tonic
