Expert Answer

Let the first typist takes X hours and the second Y hours to complete the job.

According to the question,

........(i)

When the assignment was completed, it turned out that each typist had done half the work. Hence, the first spent X/2 hr, and the second, Y/2 hr.

And since the first had begun one hour before the second,

.......(ii)

solving (i) and (ii) we get X = 10 hr and Y = 8 hr
