    Tom can wash 1/15 of the car in 1 minute Together they wash 1/10 of the car in 1 minutes. The part Tom does + the part Jerry does = the part they do together. So \[\frac{1}{15}+\frac{1}{x}=\frac{1}{10}\]

    ok - first find LCM of 10,15 and x this is 30x multiply each term by 30x gives 30x 30x 30x ---- + --- = --- 15 x 10 dividing each term 2x + 30 = 3x 30 = 3x - 2x = x so x = 30 none of the choices are correct - as kumar said the answer is c
