Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the information tells us that 2/3 work = rate * 25min

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so rate = 2/3 * 1/25 work/min

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since you want to find time now, 1 work = (2/3*1/25 work/min) * time time = 1 * 3/2*25 min

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the idea is to find rate first, and then plug the rest of the numbers in the equation
