Work at plant

Handyman has vowed to do repair work at the plant for 25 days. However, work had to be shortened and therefore gained helper. Together they made all the corrections for 13 1/3 days. How long the work would take helper himself?

Correct result:

x =  28.571

Solution:


x/25+1= x/(13+1/3)

2.625x = 75

x = 2007 ≈ 28.571429
