First paver pave pavement for 27 hours. Second for 27 hours. Started first paver and after 4 hours, join the second. How long will they finish pavement?


Correct result:

x =  15.5

Solution:

4127+(x4)(127+127)=1  x=4+27(274)27+27=15.54 \cdot \dfrac{1}{ 27} + (x-4) \cdot (\dfrac{1}{ 27} + \dfrac{1}{ 27 }) = 1 \ \\ \ \\ x = 4 + \dfrac{ 27\cdot (27-4) }{ 27+ 27} = 15.5
