    I'm one of those long-time viewers, few-time posters. Think Chick has really gone cold turkey, or is she watching, to see if the thread will wither on the vine without her (and her damn avatars)?

    I hate to admit it, but there are so many postings on other parts of this site, that the "off topic" area is the only place I regularly check anymore. And even parts of "off topic" get my blood pressure elevated. AFLAC is a place I lurk way more often than I should.

    Let's all try hard to save this thread from extinction because it is a funny and a delicious thread!

    Aww, thanks Muziek. If you want to enjoy my British wit again come on over to mytreo.net with me and Alli! We talk about nudist cruises and all sorts over there! And there's none of this 'anger' stuff that seems so fashionable in the OT section here.

    But Peter, there is none of that anger crap on the AFLAC thread. Like m00se said, let's save this thread and the heck with the rest of the Off Topic’s political anger displayed on TC. Rejoin us here, will you please? And bring back Alli and ACD and clulup with you.

    Muziek and Chick are friends. They have a job in which they keep Muziek’s driveway clear of snow. When they work together they finish shoveling in 30 minutes.
    One day Muziek had to do the job alone (Chick left to MTDN that day -- hint, hint), and it took her 40 minutes to shovel. How long would it have taken Chick to shovel the same amount alone? We are assuming that each woman always shovels at a same speed.

    2 hours?

    In theory, 2 hours. But this is purely hypothetical of course - a trick question!

    In reality, the galant gentlemen of the neighborhood would not hesitate to jump to Chick's and Muziek's rescue, wouldn't they? Therefore, it would not be possible to measure how fast Muziek and Chick-Dance shovel, neither alone nor together.


    Edit:
    Damn, 2 minutes late ... ok, here's the solution:

    m = amount of snow Muziek can shovel per minute
    c = amount of snow Chick can shovel per minute
    S = amount of snow

    Muziek takes 40 minutes alone, hence we have
    (Amount of snow) divided by (amount of snow per minute) = minutes, in other words

    S/m = 40 minutes <-> m = S/40

    When they both shovel, they take 30 minutes:

    S/(c+m) = 30 minutes

    Since we know from above that m = S/40, we can exchange m in the last equation and get

    S / (c + S/40) = 30 minutes

    From this follows:

    c = S / 120

    When Chick has to shovel alone (again, in purely hypothetical way), we get

    S/c = S / (S/120) = 120 minutes = 2 hours.

    I guess we're also assuming that the amount of snow from that particular storm is irrelevant. Living where I do, I can say that I don't like that assumption, but I'll accept it.

    Are we also taking into account the fact that the job may get done quicker when the don't have each other to talk to while they shovel?

    Good point - on the other hand, why shouldn't they talk to each other while the men shovel?

    Those 2 could talk under water, so a little snow won't stop them

    Excellent job ToolKit and clulup. (True, the amount of snow was irrelevant for the question).

    I did it simular called the snow leverl Y for some reason but used C + M

    I recognize wit when I see it, PB.
    Let’s make a deal. You come back to the AFLAC family and I will register and post on MTDN.
    (Saw Chick for coffee and scone this morning and she is as vivacious as ever. Well, omitting a few issues here and there.)

    Well you guys are the only reason I've come back to TC at all so yes, I'll pop in now and then. Btw Chick was last spotted in the Good Morning/Good-day thread on mtdn

    Maybe we should ask the mods to have Aflac on both forums, it would make life easier, at least for the cross-cultural posters. You know, sort of "bridging the chasm"...

    It used to work with the off topic sections of Visorcentral and Treocentral, why not here?

    Touché!
    Of course Chick might ask to have her 3000 posts move to MTDN as well...
