Formula for working together: \[\frac{S \times L}{S + L} = t \] S = Stuart's time L = Lucy's time t = Time it takes when Stuart and Lucy work together In this case: S = x L = x - 13 t = 42 Thus: \[\frac{x(x-13)}{x + x - 13} = 42\] After solving for x, you should get: x = 91

This is the only way I can explain it: Michael can complete a task in 5 minutes. Nancy can complete the same task in 7 minutes. How much time would it take if they did the job together? Using the "Time Working Together" formula: \[\frac{ M \times N}{M + N} = t\] Insert the given values M = 5 and N = 7: \[\frac{5 \times 7}{5 + 7} = t\] Now solve for t: \[\frac{35}{12} = t\] \[t = 2.91 \approx 3\] Therefore, if they work together, Michael and Nancy can complete the task in approximately 3 minutes.
