Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0T can paint a room in 8 hrs, Thus in 1 nr T can paint 1/8th of the room T+ E can paint a room in 3 hrs, thus in 1 hr T + E can paint 1/3 rd of the room Thus E alone, in one hour can paint 1/31/8 of the room = 5/24 th of the room Thus E will need 24/5 hours to paint the whole room alone = 4.8 hrs
