# Painting A Room - Work Problem

by Andrew

(New York)

It looked like an easy problem when I initially saw it. However, I simply have no clue how to even start it.

Working alone, Roger can paint a room in 6 hours. Working alone, Chris can paint the

same room in 8 hours. If they begin the job together, and Chris takes an hour off for

lunch, determine the amount of time, in hours and minutes, that it will take for the room

to be painted. Round your answer to the nearest minute.
