Working alone, Edward can paint a room in \( 8 hr \) . Abdalla can paint the same room working alone in \( 6 hr \) . How long will it take them if they work together? (Let \( t \) represent the time they work together.) 

 

Answer

\(\frac { 1 } { 8 } t + \frac { 1 } { 6 } t = 1 , \text { or } \frac { 1 } { 8 } + \frac { 1 } { 6 } = \frac { 1 } { t }\)
