    x/5 + x/4 = 1 20( x/5 +x/4=1) 4x+5x=20 9x=20 x=20/9 = 2.4444444444 hours

    Jack will mow 1/4 per hour. Marilyn will mow 1/6 per hour. 1/4 + 1/6 = 3/12 + 2/12 = 5/12 Together they will mow 5/12 per hour. Total hours x mowed per hour = 1 Hours x 5/12 = 1 Hours = 1/(5/12) Hours = 2.4

    1/5 not 1/6 but that way will work very well too
