Morgan can paint a room in 10 hours, while Sophia can paint it in 4 hours. If Morgan paints for x hours and Sophia paints for y hours, they will finish half of the painting, while if Morgan paints for y hours and Sophia paints for x hours they will paint the whole room. Find the ordered pair (x,y), expressing both x and y as simplified fractions.

The equation would be

 

Rate x=time y= job

 

1/10x+1/4 y =1/2  

1/10y+1/4 x = 1     

 

Now, solve for x and y.

 

Hope this helped!
