Three people who work full time are to work together on a project, but their total time on the project is to be equivalent to that of only one person working full time. If one of the people is budgeted for one half of his time to the project and a second person for one third of her time, what part of the third worker's time should be budgeted to this project?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

let the time be t

1st person=1/2t

2nd person=1/3t

=1/2 + 1/3t

=5/6t

so t - 5/6t

=1/6t

so the 3rd person works for 1/6 of the time

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
