The garden hose at Andre's house can fill a 5-gallon bucket in 2 minutes. The hose at his next-door neighbor’s house can fill a 10-gallon bucket in 8 minutes. If they use both their garden hoses at the same time, and the hoses continue working at the same rate they did when filling a bucket, how long will it take to fill a 750-gallon pool?

1/2 + 2/8  =  150/x    solvew for x     (200 minutes)

 

one 5 gal bucket in 2 minutes =     1/5

one 10 gallon bucket in 8 min  =    2/8

750  = 150 five gallon buckets
