if sally can paint a house in 4 hours and john can paint the same house in 6 hours, how long will it take for them to paint the house together?

The way you calculate this (assuming that both work at constant speed) is:* Calculate what part of the house each person can paint in an hour. * Add both fractions together, to calculate what part of the house you can paint together. * Take the reciprocal of this last result, to calculate the number of hours.

4 workers would need 40 hours to paint 200 trucks, so 20 workers would paint your 200 in 8 hours.

Delbert can paint the fence in 11 hours so in 1 hour Delbert paints 1/11 of a fence. Similarly, in 1 hour Dorothy paints 1/12 of a fence. So together, in 1 hour they paint 1/11 + 1/12 = 12/132 + 11/132 = 23/132 of a fence. So to paint the fence together they would need 1 / (23/132) = 132/23 hours = 5.74 hours

No, you cannot. The fence is the property of your neighbor and you have no right to paint it.

no because the paint wood get moldy on the fence and dry and crackle out so no you can't.

No fence paint does not have as much wax in it and it wont last very long before you have to paint it again. As decking has a lot of foot traffic as obviously a fence does not. Take it from me I found out the hard way. Yes deck paint is more expensive but will last a long time.
