When u = 6,
Solutions:

2. Winston can mow his dad's lawn in 1 hour less than it takes his brother Willie. If they take 2 hours to mow it when working together, then how long would it take Winston working alone?
Winston working alone: x hours
Then Willie working alone: (x +1) hours.
Assume the lawn is A square feet.
The speed of Winston is . The speed of Willie is .
When working together, the rate at which they are working is . So it takes them hours to finish the lawn.

So

Then multiplying (2x + 1) to both sides of equation:

Then it takes hours or about 3.56 hours to finish the lawn when Winston working alone.
