A man can drink a barrel of water for 26 days, woman for 48 days. How many days will a barrel last between them?

Result

x =  16.865 d

Solution:


x*(1/26 + 1/48) = 1

37x = 624

x = 62437 ≈ 16.864865

Very poor English! Who phrased this problem(?) as it is not stated correctly - it is incoherent!

Extremely poor wording! A man drinks a barrel of water for 26 days, woman for 48 days, for how many days they drink barrel together? Who wrote this???? It should be, a man can drink...., and a woman...., how many days will a barrel last between them (or for both of them). Who ever wrote this question has very poor English skills and should not be writing math word problems using English!
