Need some help again with another word problem...I hate these things....here is the problem: An efficient heater can warm the entire gymnasium in 3 hours. An older, less efficient heater requires 8 hours to heat the same space. How long would it take to heat the gymnasium if both heaters worked together?

if you had two of the three hour heaters, it would take 1.5 hours right so y/3+y/3=2y/3 or 1.5 following y/8+y/3= 11y/24 or 2.1818 makes sense because its less than the three hour alone
