Excavation

Mr. Billy calculated that excavation for a water connection dig for 12 days. His friend would take 10 days. Billy worked 3 days alone. Then his friend came to help and started on the other end.

On what day since the beginning of excavation they met?

Result

n =  8

Solution:

Solution in text n =

3 / 12 +(n-3)/12 + (n-3)/10 = 1

11n = 78

n = 7811 ≈ 7.090909
