Extremely poor wording! A man drinks a barrel of water for 26 days, woman for 48 days, for how many days they drink barrel together? Who wrote this???? It should be, a man can drink...., and a woman...., how many days will a barrel last between them (or for both of them). Who ever wrote this question has very poor English skills and should not be writing math word problems using English!
