8. If Sam can do a job in 4 days that Lisa can do in 6 days and Tom can do in 2 days, how long would the job take if Sam, Lisa, and Tom worked together to complete it?
A. 0.8 days
B. 1.09 days
C. 1.23 days
D. 1.65 days
E. 1.97 days
So I know that the answer is B but I have no idea what formula I am supposed to use to actually get that answer....
My friend and I did this but there has to be an easier way to do it, right?
[03:57:51 p.m.] Blaze: sam can do 25% in a day...
[03:58:13 p.m.] Blaze: lisa can do... 16.66%
[03:58:23 p.m.] Blaze: and tom can do 50%....
[03:58:59 p.m.] Blaze: in 1 day they can do 91.66%... right?
which also means that together they accomplish about 3.82% an hour
so far i've got 1 day 2 hours... let me go further
[04:01:49 p.m.] Blaze: its also about 0.063% a minute
[04:02:55 p.m.] Blaze: now im at 1 day 2 hours and 11 minutes and like 30 or so seconds
So as you can see... this is not going well...
