Professor X spends his professional time among teaching, research, and committee meetings. None of the time in any of these three activities overlaps with either of the other two. He spends 1/5if his time teaching and 3/5 of that time preparing to teach. He spends 1/2 of his time doing research and 3/8 of that time in the lab. How much of all of his time does he spend preparing to teach, how much of all of his time does he spend in the lab and why is my final answer of this problem 3/25 and 3/16.
