The first worker would himself completed the work in 8 hours, the other in 6 hours. After two hours of joint work left the first worker to a doctor and other completed work himself. How many hours worked the other worker himself?

Result

t =  2.5 h

Solution:


2*(1/8 + 1/6) + t/6 = 1

4t = 10

t = 52 = 2.5
