    simple and enjoying mathematical task

    suppose there are three workers, second worker completes work 4 times quicker than third worker, first worker needs 4 days more than second worker to complete the work. if they work together, then will complete the work in 6 days.

    question: what fraction of work will third worker complete if he will work 2 days?
