1. Alice needs 1 hour to do a certain job. Betty, her older sister, can do the same job in 1/2 hour. How many minutes will it take them to do the job if they work together at the given rates?
2. A twelve hour clock loses 1 minute every hour. Suppose it shows the correct time now. What is the least number of hours from now when it will again show the correct time.
Thanks for looking.
