C++ Program for Time and Work Problems in Mathematical Ability

John can design a website in 8 days. Sam can do the same work in 5 days. Write a program to calculate the number of websites a company can produce in 30 days, if both Sam and John are employed together.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
    float johnPerDay = 1.0f / 8.0f;
    float samPerDay = 1.0f / 5.0f;
    float bothPerDay = johnPerDay + samPerDay;
    cout << "In 30 days: ";
    cout << (int)(30 * bothPerDay) << endl;
    return 0;
