working alone, Angie can process the payroll in 5 hours while Pam can finish the job in 6 hours. How long would it take Pam and Angie to do the job together
Let the time taken be 'x' hours.
Angie can process the payroll in 5 hours. so in x hours, she can process x/5 of the payroll
Pam can process the payroll in 6 hours. so in x hours, Pam can process x/6 of the payroll
The fraction that Angie process the payroll in x hours +The fraction that Pam process the payroll in x hours = 1 payroll processed
x/5 + x/6 =1
