Solution for yesterday’s problem
Time ratio of John and Alice = 7:5; therefore their efficiency ratio=5:7
Let John type 5x pages and Alice type 7x pages in one hour
John types the mean value of 5x and 7x = 6x
By supposition, 5x+6x+7x = 216/4 = 54
=> x = 3; they type 15, 18, 21 pages respectively in one hour.
