I have a process that takes a total of 25 mins to complete.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

5 people are available to do 10 mins of it and 3 people the remainder.

The process can be done many times a day.

I don't know if it makes a difference but the 10 min part is only done by 1 person and the 15 min part can be done by any of the 3.

How can I express the number of people available for the process as a single fraction?

Thanks in advance...
