It takes Maria 11 mins to weed a garden. Mike can weed the same garden in 10 minutes. How long would it take them if they work together?  I got 21 mins but i honestly don't know how to round it.

1/10 = Mike's part. 1/11 = Maria'a part. 1/x = time it will take if both will work.

then i would multiply the 1 and that would isolate the x. leaving me with the 21/110 and then i simplify it?

x is in the denominator currently. Do something to bring it to the numerator.

multiply the 110 to the top and bottom. I would get 110 over 110x?

See this, \[\frac{ 1 }{ a }=\frac{ 11 }{ 10 }\] \[a=\frac{ 10 }{ 11 }\]
