    \[T_{F} = 3, T_{Jo} = 2, T_{Moe} = 5\]\[R_{F} = W/T_{F}, R_{Jo} = W/T_{Jo}, R_{M} = W/T_{M}\] W is work to be done to build a model airplane, R rate of work of wach person when three work together time taken \[W/(W/T_{F} +W/T_{Jo} +W/T_{M})\] 0.97 days

    @sumanth4phy what formula is that? Rate = work / time? could you explain what you did there?

    I see how you add their separate rates but why what are you dividing?

    yeah Rate/Speed at which work is done = W/T I need time so T=W/R hence the division
