First, figure out how many fish each person can catch in one hour. We already know that Jimmy can catch 4. Since Phil can catch 4 in 2 hours, he can catch 2 in 1 hour. LIkewise, dad can catch 3 in one hour. So all together, they can catch 9 fish in one hour. If H is the number of hours it will take, we can set up the following expression: \[\frac{9\ fish}{1\ hour}(H\ hours) = 50\ fish \] or 9H = 50. Then just solve for H!
