    let us suppose their are two people A & B A can complete the job in 30 hrs so in one hour he will complete (1/30) th job simmilarly B can complete the job in one hour = (1/10) th job therefore in a hour both will do = (1/30)+(1/10) there fore both together will complete the work in (15/2) hrs = 7.5 hrs
