Ted can clear a football field of debris in 3 hours. Jacob can clear the same field in 2 hours. When they work together, the situation can be modeled by the equation, where t is the number of hours it would take to clear the field together.

How long will it take Ted and Jacob to clear the field together?

Answer:[tex]\frac{6}{5}[/tex] of an hour = 1 1/5 hour = 72 minutes

Step-by-step explanation:[tex]\frac{1}{3} h + \frac{1}{2}h = 1\\\\\frac{2}{6} h + \frac{3}{6}h = 1\\\\\\\frac{5 }{6} h =1\\\\h=\frac{6}{5}[/tex]
