Working together, Philip and Brian swept the porch in six minutes. When Philip swept the porch by himself, he took eighteen minutes. Assuming each person sweeps at a constant rate, how long, in minutes, does it take Brian to sweep the porch by himself?

Philip = P

Brian = B

 

1/P + 1/B =1 / 6

1/18 + 1/B = 1 / 6

1/B = 1 / 6 - 1 / 18

B = 9 - minutes for Brian to aweep the porch.
