It takes four painters working at the same rate 1.25 work-days to finish a job. If only two painters are available, how many work-days will it take them to finish the job, working at the same rate? Express your answer as a mixed number.

1/2 of the painters will obviously take twice as long = 2.5 days 2 1/2 days
