a glassblower can produce a set of simple gasses in about 2 hours. when the glassblower works with an apprentice, the job takes about 1.5 hours. How long would it take the apprentice to make a set of glasses when working alone?

2. Relevant equations

none

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm really having trouble with this question. The back of the book says that it will take the apprentice 6 hours to do so, but I don't have the slightest clue of how they got there.
