    I know that we utilize fractions 1/8 and 1/6 (park per hour). By multiplying to a common denominator, we know that together Cody and Kaitlyn complete 7 jobs per 24 hours.

    7/24 is the fraction of the project that can be completed by Cody and Kaitlyn working together. The time in hours for the project to be completed by both working is the reciprocal of 7/24. Therefore the required equation for the time t hours needed to complete the project with both working is: \[\large t=\frac{1}{\frac{1}{6}+\frac{1}{8}}\]
