three people who work full time are to work together on a project, but their total time on the project is to be equivalant to that of only one person working full time. If one of the people is budgeted for one-half of his time to the project and a second person for one-third of her time, what part of the third workers time should be budgeted to this project????

    ok so, total time on the project equivavelent to a person working fulltime = let it be 1 right? so the 3 people 1st person is to spend half of his time so half of 1 ? 2nd person is to spend 1/3rd of his time so 1/3rd of 1? what time should the third person spend? the first persons time + the second persons time - the total time
