The James family and the Jones family each used their sprinklers last summer. The water output rate for the James family's sprinkler was 25L/ per hour. The water output rate for the Jones family's sprinkler was 15L/ per hour. The families used their sprinklers for a combined total of 55 hours, resulting in a total water output of 1225L . How long was each sprinkler used?

25J + 15L = 1225 J + L = 55 I believe this is what it is asking.
