Step-by-step explanation:

Then Joe and Jeremy will do the job in one hour time

Joe takes 5 hours to do the job  then in one hour time he does  1/5

Joe takes 400% as long as the time it takes Jeremy to finish the job

then       5 hours     400

x  ??         100         x = 5/4

So Jeremy will take 5/4 hours to do the job.

Then in one hour working together Joe and Jeremy they will do

1/5 + 1/ (5/4)     =    1/5  +  4/5   =  5/5   =  1

Then Joe and Jeremy will do the job in one hour time

And Joe and Joanne will do half job in one hour
