Answer:

8 hrs

Step-by-step explanation:

2/3 = 8/12

1/12 each hour

It will take 8 hours

Answer:8 hours

First make both fractions have common denominators: 1/12 and 8/12

Solve the equation 8/12 = 1/12x; so x equals 1/8 meaning each hour they can repave 1/8 of the total. So the amount of hours it takes to repave the road is 8
