Answer:As per the question, Peter can finish twice as much work as finished by Tom in a given duration of time. of their one day work will be completed by Tom. So, Tom will take 48 days to complete the task

Step-by-step explanation:Let Tom alone take 2x days

Peter alone will take x days

Together in 1 day they do 1/x + 1/2x = 1/16

3/2x = 1/16

2x = 48

ANSWER Tom takes 48 days and Peter takes 24 days

CHECK

1/48+1/24 = 3/48= 1/16
