John takes 20 hours to paint a building so in one hour he'll paint 1/20 th of the building similarly Sam paints 1/15 th of the building in an hour together they 'll paint in an hour =1/15 +1/20 of the building i.e 35/300 sam paints in an hour 1/15 of building so building left to paint= 1-1/15=14/15 so time taken for the two to paint he rest= (14/15)/(35/300)= 8 hours
