B is twice efficient as A and A can do a piece of work in 15 days. A started the work an after a few days B joined him . They completed the work in 11 days , from the starting .For how many days did they work together ?

A =15 days , A's one day work =1/15

B = 7.5 days ( B eficency is twice as A),  B's one day work =1/7.5

Work completed by A in 11days = 11/15

Remaining  work =1-11/15 =4/15  (Completed by B)

Remaining  work  Completed by B in = 4/15 *1/7.5 = 2 days
