Q:

# A can write 32 pages in 6 hours and B can write 40 pages in 5 hours. If they write together, in how many hours they can write 110 pages ?

 A) 7 hrs B) 6 hrs 10 min C) 5 hrs 25min D) 8 hrs 15 min

Answer:   D) 8 hrs 15 min

Explanation:

A can write in 1hour = 32/6 pages

Similarly, B in 1 hour = 40/5 pages

Together (A+B) in 1 hour = 32/6 + 40/5 = 40/3

So, A+B write 40/3 pages in 1 hour

A+B write 110 pages in (3/40) x 110 Hours = 8 hours 15 min.

Q:

A, B and C can do a piece of work in 72, 48 and 36 days respectively. For first p/2 days, A & B work together and for next ((p+6))/3days all three worked together. Remaining 125/3% of work is completed by D in 10 days. If C & D worked together for p day then, what portion of work will be remained?

 A) 1/5 B) 1/6 C) 1/7 D) 1/8

Explanation:

Total work is given by L.C.M of 72, 48, 36

Total work = 144 units

Efficieny of A = 144/72 = 2 units/day

Efficieny of B = 144/48 = 3 units/day

Efficieny of C = 144/36 = 4 units/day

According to the given data,

2 x p/2 + 3 x p/2 + 2 x (p+6)/3 + 3 x (p+6)/3 + 4 x (p+6)/3 = 144 x (100 - 125/3) x 1/100

3p + 4.5p + 2p + 3p + 4p = 84 x 3 - 54

p = 198/16.5

p = 12 days.

Now, efficency of D = (144 x 125/3 x 1/100)/10 = 6 unit/day

(C+D) in p days = (4 + 6) x 12 = 120 unit

Remained part of work = (144-120)/144 = 1/6.

Q:

10 men and 15 women together can complete a work in 6 days. It takes 100 days for one man alone to complete the same work. How many days will be required for one woman alone to complete the same work?

 A) 215 days B) 225 days C) 235 days D) 240 days

Explanation:

Given that

(10M + 15W) x 6 days = 1M x 100 days

=> 60M + 90W = 100M

=> 40M = 90W

=> 4M = 9W.

From the given data,

1M can do the work in 100 days

=> 4M can do the same work in 100/4= 25 days.

=> 9W can do the same work in 25 days.

=> 1W can do the same work in 25 x 9 = 225 days.

Hence, 1 woman can do the same work in 225 days.

Q:

A,B,C can complete a work in 15,20 and 30 respectively.They all work together for two days then A leave the work,B and C work some days and B leaves 2 days before completion of that work.how many days required to complete the whole work?

Given A,B,C can complete a work in 15,20 and 30 respectively.

The total work is given by the LCM of 15, 20, 30 i.e, 60.

A's 1 day work = 60/15 = 4 units

B's 1 day work = 60/20 = 3 units

C's 1 day work = 60/30 = 2 units

(A + B + C) worked for 2 days = (4 + 3 + 2) 2 = 18 units

Let B + C worked for x days = (3 + 2) x = 5x units

C worked for 2 days = 2 x 2 = 4 units

Then, 18 + 5x + 4 = 60

22 + 5x = 60

5x = 38

x = 7.6

Therefore, total number of days taken to complete the work = 2 + 7.6 + 2 = 11.6 = 11 3/5 days.

Q:

M, N and O can complete the work in 18, 36 and 54 days respectively. M started the work and worked for 8 days, then N and O joined him and they all worked together for some days. M left the job one day before completion of work. For how many days they all worked together?

 A) 4 B) 5 C) 3 D) 6

Explanation:

Let M, N and O worked together for x days.

From the given data,
M alone worked for 8 days
M,N,O worked for x days
N, O worked for 1 day

But given that
M alone can complete the work in 18 days
N alone can complete the work in 36 days
O alone can complete the work in 54 days

The total work can be the LCM of 18, 6, 54 = 108 units

M's 1 day work = 108/18 = 6 units
N's 1 day work = 108/36 = 3 units
O's 1 day work = 108/54 = 2 units

Now, the equation is
8 x 6 + 11x + 5 x 1 = 108
48 + 11x + 5 = 108
11x = 103 - 48
11x = 55
x = 5 days.

Hence, all M,N and O together worked for 5 days.

Q:

P, Q, and R can do a job in 12 days together.  If their efficiency of working be in the ratio 3 : 8 : 5, Find in what time Q can complete the same work alone?

 A) 36 days B) 30 days C) 24 days D) 22 days

Explanation:

Given the ratio of efficiencies of P, Q & R are 3 : 8 : 5

Let the efficiencies of P, Q & R be 3x, 8x and 5x respectively

They can do work for 12 days.

=> Total work = 12 x 16x = 192x

Now, the required time taken by Q to complete the job alone = days.

Q:

5 men and 3 boys can together cultivate a 23 acre field in 4 days and 3 men and 2 boys together can cultivate a 7 acre field in 2 days. How many boys will be needed together with 7 men, if they cultivate 45 acre of field in 6 days.

 A) 6 B) 4 C) 2 D) 3

Explanation:

Let work done by 1 man in i day be m

and Let work done by 1 boy in 1 day be b

From the given data,

4(5m + 3b) = 23

20m + 12b = 23....(1)

2(3m + 2b) = 7

6m + 4b = 7 ....(2)

By solving (1) & (2), we get

m = 1, b = 1/4

Let the number of required boys = n

6(7 1 + n x 1/4) = 45

=> n = 2.

Q:

The ratio of efficiencies of P, Q and R is 2 : 3 : 4. While P and R work on alternate days and Q work for all days. Now the work completed in total 10 days and the total amount they get is Rs. 1200. Find the amount of each person(respectively).

 A) 200, 600, 400 B) 400, 600, 200 C) 600, 200, 400 D) 400, 200, 600

Explanation:

Ratio of efficiencies of P, Q and R = 2 : 3 : 4

From the given data,

Number of working days of P, Q, R = 5 : 10 : 5

Hence, ratio of amount of p, Q, R = 2x5 : 3x10 : 4x5 = 10 : 30 : 20

Amounts of P, Q, R = 200, 600 and 400.

Q:

Two persons Shyam and Rahim can do a job in 32 days together. Rahim can do the same job in 48 days alone. They started working together and after working 8 days Rahim is replaced by a third person Ram whose efficiency is half that of Rahim. Find in how many days the remaining work will be completed by both Shyam and Ram together?

 A) 16 days B) 72/5 days C) 15 days D) 96/5 days

Explanation:

Work done by Shyam and Rahim in 8 days = 8/32 = 1/4

Remaining work to be done by Shyam and Ram = 1 - 1/4 = 3/4

Given efficieny of Ram is half of Rahim i.e, as Rahim can do the work in 48 days, Ram can do the work in 24 days.

One day work of Ram and Shyam = (1/32 - 1/48) + 1/24 = 5/96

Hence, the total work can be done by Shyam and Ram together in 96/5 days.

Therefore, remaining work 3/4 can be done by them in 3/4 x 96/5 = 72/5 = 14.4 days.
