Hey guys,

i'm preparing for the GRE currently and I'm having some slight trouble with work rate problems. 

I bought Kaplan's GRE prep book, and I've been trying to figure out if there's a difference in how you solve a work problem that says, "working together but independently" versus a work problem that says "working together". 

If there is a difference in the way you would solve them, what is it? Also, what would working together but independently mean exactly in this case?

Hmm, I've never heard of the distinction of "together but independently" vs "together". I wouldn't think it would impact how you would solve it because they are still getting the same total "work" done. However, I too sometimes get hung up on the Work problems. I know for a fact that Magoosh never bothered to make that distinction in their videos on work problems. That would indicate to me it isn't an important distinction if there is a difference. Wish I could be more helpful!
