A swimming pool can be filled by one hose in x days; or a different size hose in y days. It can be filled using both hoses together in m days.

Find a formula for m in terms of x &y, in its simplest form.

i have that that H1x = full pool. H2y = full pool; therefore h1x =h2y (both giving full pools).

for m - h1*m + h2*m = full pool.

so h1m+h2m = full pool

so h1m+h2m = h2y; and h1m+h2m=h1x

but i cant figure out where to go now - any ideas>
