Blueberries collecting

Marie collects blueberries 2 l in 1 hour. Began collecting at 8.00 pm, Joe collects 1.5 l in 1 hour. Peter 1 l for 1 hr. And they began to gather at 08.30 pm. Together they collect 10 l. At what time will they all have collected?

Result

t = 10:30 hh:mm Wrong answer

Solution:


2•(t-8.00) + (1.5+1)•(t-8.50) = 10

4.5t = 47.25

t = 21/2 = 10.5

Our simple equation calculator calculates it.
