Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The two can clean together in 208/29=7.17 hrs(approx). Reason: Asanji can complete 1/13 in one hr. Jenny can complete 1/16 of the work in one hr. Both can complete (1/13)+(1/16)=29/208 part in one hr. Therefore both can complete the whole work in 208/29=7.17 hrs.
