    Answer:

    3 hours and 40 minutes.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    To make it easier, we can first convert 1 hour 50 minutes to all minutes. 1 hour is 60 minutes, so it would be 110 minutes.

    The problem tells us that 1/2 of the work takes 110 minutes, and we need to find the amount of time it takes to complete the entire work.

    1/2 is well, half of a whole. That means it is 50% done, and 50% takes 110 minutes to complete. The other 50% then, would ALSO take 110 minutes, as it is the same. Therefore, since there are two sets of 110 minutes, it would be 110*2, giving us 220 minutes, or 3 hours and 40 minutes.
