If Joe paints a house in 5 hours and Mike paints the same house in 3 hours then if they paint it together then how much will it take? If we do this question by 1/5 & 1/3 and then join each time piece together in order to reach 1 (as the house is 1) then the answer is approx. 1.87, now I found on google that there's a formula for such problem which is a+b/ab where a & b are 5 & 3, then still the answer is approx. 1.87, My question is that how we found this formula? P.s. this question is from some Hollywood movie. OpenStudy (anonymous):

In 1 hour Joe will paint 1/5 of house In 1 hour Mike will paint 1/3 of house 1 1 Together in 1 hour they will paint ---- + ----- of house 5 3 Now when we add the two fractions the LCD will be 5*3 = 15 (ab) 1 1 3 + 5 b + a a + b so ---- + ---- = -------- = -------- or -------- 5 3 5*3 ab ab OpenStudy (anonymous):

Good explanation harkirat! OpenStudy (anonymous):

Sorry the formula is ab/a+b OpenStudy (anonymous):

OK so the whole formula is 1 /(a+b/ab)
