Five tractors

Five tractors plow field in 4.8 hours. How long plow this field if after 1.5 hours of work two tractors went to a different field?

Result

x =  7 h

Solution:

1.554.85+(x1.5)34.85=1\dfrac{1.5\cdot 5}{4.8\cdot 5} + \dfrac{(x-1.5)\cdot 3}{4.8\cdot 5}=1

1.5*5/(4.8*5) + (x-1.5)*3/(4.8*5)=1

0.125x = 0.875

x = 7
