Question on: One computer printer can print a company's mailing labels in 40 minutes. A second printer would take 60 minutes to print the labels. How long would it take the two printers, operating together, to print the labels?

It will take 24 minutes to the two printers, operating together, to print the labels.

Solution:

Let x= time it takes both computers working together

Then both computers print at the rate of 1/x mailing labels per min

First computer prints at the rate of 1/40 mailing labels per min

Second computer prints at the rate of 1/60 mailing labels per min

So:

1/40 + 1/60 = 1/x multiply each term by 120x

3x+2x=120

5x=120

x=24 min- - - - -time required when both computers work together

CK

In 24 min first computer completes (1/40)*24=24/40 of the mailing labels

|x - 4| = 2;

x - 4 = 2; x = 2 + 4; x = 6

-(x - 4) = 2; -x + 4 = 2; -x = 2 - 4; -x = -2; x = 2

x = 6 or x = 2

|2x – 7| = 3;

2x - 7 = 3; 2x = 3 + 7; 2x = 10; x = 10/2; x = 5;

-(2x – 7) = 3; -2x + 7 = 3; -2x = 3 - 7; -2x = -4; x = -4/-2; x = 2

x = 5 or x = 2
