One lawn care worker can mow 3 lawns in 60 minutes, and another worker can mow 5 lawns in 75 minutes. If they work together, how long will it take them to mow 7 lawns

First find the rate for each mower, 3 lawns in 60 minutes = 20 minutes per lawn = 1/20 lawn per minute

5 lawns in 75 minutes = 15 minutes per lawn = 1/15 lawn per minute if they are working together to mow 7 lawns, let t = time: (1/20)t + (1/15)t = 7 multiply through by LCD of 60:

3t + 4t = 420 7t = 420 t = 60 Both will take them 60 minutes to mow 7 lawns if they work together.
