A building contractor has n days to complete a house project. If he uses one-third of the time to repair the roof and five days to paint the house, how many days will he have left to complete the project?
n days to complete project
1/3 to repair
so it means 2/3 to paint and it takes 5 days
2 = 5 days
3 = more days
3/ 2 x 5
7.5 days to complete project
