    I need help in doing this math question. Sally paint a house in 4 hours and john paint the same house in 6 hours, how long will it take for both of them to paint the house together. The practice questions gives me the answer but I don't know to to arrive at the answer. Thank you.
    So, If Sally can paint a whole house in 4 hours, she can paint half a house in two hours. John can paint a whole house in 6 hours so he can paint half a house in three hours.... so if sally paints half (2hours) and John paints half(3hours) = they can paint the whole house together in 5 hours (2+3).

    Here's how to do this problem...
    If Sally can paint the house in 4 hours, then in 1 hour she can paint 1/4 of the house.
    If John can paint the house in 6 hours, then in 1 hour he can paint 1/6 of the house.
    Let x = number of hours it would take them together to paint the house, then working together, in 1 hour they can paint 1/x of the house.

    The equation is this:





    Multiply both sides by the LCD which is 12x:



    = 2.4 hours

    What's a passing score? For me, it was 65%, which really is not very much. I wouldn't be freaking out about HAVING to get a PERFECT score.... wont really make a difference, either you pass or fail.

    SO....

    Just BREATHE!

    In my entire life, I have never had any kind of text anxiety, except for when I took the TEAS. Maybe becuase passing was so terribly important to me. Just pace your self, and relax. There were a couple times I found myself getting nervous, and would have to stop myself, take a couple breaths, and get right back into it. And of course, get plenty of sleep, have a good meal before, and good luck!

    The TEAS test was a piece of cake (compared to nursing school exams and the nclex). It's just an assessment of what you should already know. It's pretty much jr high to high-school level reading, math, and science. Other than reviewing basic formulas (volume, temp conversion C to F, etc), I'm not sure you can really do a lot to prepare for it. Just try to relax. Take you time. Read the questions carefully, and double-check your math work. You'll be fine.
