Two looms

On two different looms with different performance can be make required quantity of textile in 6 hours when both work together. On the first machine this quantity of the textile can make in 10 hours. How long should take make same quantity of textile on a second machine?

Result

b =  15 h

Solution:


b/6-b/10=1

2b = 30

b = 15
