If Dano paint three hours daily given work he complete in 7.5 days. How many hours a day would have to work to finish the job 1.5 days earlier?


x =  3.75 h


3*7.5 = x*(7.5-1.5)

6x = 22.5

x = 154 = 3.75

Do you have a linear equation or system of equations and looking for its solution? Or do you have quadratic equation? Most natural application of trigonometry and trigonometric functions is a calculation of the triangles. Common and less common calculations of different types of triangles offers our triangle calculator. Word trigonometry comes from Greek and literally means triangle calculation.
