# Time and Work Questions

A) 60/11 | B) 61/11 |

C) 71/11 | D) 72/11 |

Explanation:

P can complete the work in (12 * 8) hrs = 96 hrs

Q can complete the work in (8 * 10) hrs=80 hrs

P's 1 hour work=1/96 and Q's 1 hour work= 1/80

(P+Q)'s 1 hour's work = =

so both P and Q will finish the work in hrs

Number of days of 8 hours each =

A) 50 | B) 40 |

C) 45 | D) 10 |

Explanation:

It can be solved easily through option.

55 = 55 Hence correct

**Alternatively:**

** **

** **=> n= 10

In Both cases total work is 55man-days.

A) 10 % | B) 14 2/7 % |

C) 20 % | D) Can't be determined |

Explanation:

Let he initially employed x workers which works for D days and he estimated 100 days for the whole work and then he doubled the worker for (100-D) days.

D * x +(100- D) * 2x= 175x

=> D= 25 days

Now , the work done in 25 days = 25x

Total work = 175x

therefore, workdone before increasing the no of workers = %

A) 4 days | B) 6 days |

C) 8 days | D) 10 days |

Explanation:

Ratio of rates of working of A and B =2:1. So, ratio of times taken =1:2

A's 1 day's work=1/9

B's 1 day's work=1/18

(A+B)'s 1 day's work=

so, A and B together can finish the work in 6 days
