# A supervisor must split 60 hours of overtime between five people. One employee must be assigned twice the numb?

A supervisor must split 60 hours of overtime between five people. One employee must be assigned twice the number of hours as each of the other four employees.

If one person has twice the amount of hours, figure that you have 6 employees and then divide 60 by the 6. Add the 5th and 6th person’s hours.

One employee works 20, the others 10

Okay this one is easy. so you know that there are 5 people, but you are really splitting it into 6 units of time because one person is acting as two people. so 6. therefore if x is the number of hours one person must work…
6x=60
x=10.
anyways, you don’t leave the actual question, but the normal people work 10 hours and the other employee works 20. that was super easy, wasn’t it?

So x is the number of hours overtime per person. One person does 2x hours of overtime.
That means 6x=60
x=10
4 people do 10 hours and one person does 20 hours.
