    Answer:

    12 minutes

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First we figure out how much of a car each person can wash in 1 minute.

    Shea can wash the car by herself in 20 minutes

    Therefore, she can wash a car in 1 minute = \frac{1}{20}

    Tucker can wash a car in 30 minutes.

    Tucker can wash the car in 1 minute = \frac{1}{30}

    Thus, in one minute together they wash a car

    \frac{1}{20} + \frac{1}{30} = \frac{50}{600} = \frac{1}{12}

    In one minute together they can wash  = \frac{1}{12} of a car

    Time needed to wash entire car together = 12 minutes.

    It takes them 12 minutes to wash the car.
