 tissue Oct 04, 2002 Isn't this basically if man and a half can dig a hole and a half... stargirl Oct 05, 2002 well, that is sorta a good one hairomero Oct 07, 2002 What i did was...trial and error..my first instint was 2 hours so i took 2 and divided by # of hours each took. ex. small takes 9 hours so its 2/9..then i took the percentage of that and did that for the other two. It came up to 99% when i added the 3 together so i guess thats correct. waffle Feb 27, 2005 This was really easy. You just have to add some fractions to figure out how much of a warren they can dig in one hour. waffle Feb 27, 2005 This was really easy.

Jimbo Jun 04, 2012 An easy way to think about it (9, 6 and 4.5 divide into 1 is to imagine that a warren contains 18 cubic metres of dirt. Rabbit A digs 2 cum/hr, Rabbit B digs 3 cum/hr and rabbit C digs 4 cum/hr. Altogether they dig 9 cum/hr so it takes 2 hours. Good Teaser.
