Q:

Adam and Smith are working on a project. Adam takes 6 hrs to type 36 pages on a computer, while Smith takes 5 hrs to type 40 pages. How much time will they take, working together on two different computers to type a project of 120 pages?

A) 8 hrs 45 min B) 8 hrs 42 min
C) 8 hrs D) 8 hrs 34 min

Answer:   D) 8 hrs 34 min



Explanation:

Number of pages typed by Adam in 1 hour = 36/6 = 6
Number of pages typed by Smith in 1 hour = 40/5 = 8
Number of pages typed by both in 1 hour = (6 + 8) = 14
Time taken by both to type 110 pages = (120 * 1/14) = 847 = 8 hrs 34 min.

Q:

Three men, four women and six children can complete a work in 9 days. A women does  double the work a man does and a child does half the work a man does. How many women alone can complete this work in 9 days?

A) 7 B) 8
C) 9 D) 6
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 7

Explanation:

Given (3 Men + 4 Women + 6 Children) -----> 9 days

But W = 2M and C = M/2

Now, convert Men and Children into Women by

3W2 + 4W + 6W4=> 32 + 4 + 32 = 7 Women 

Therefore, 7 women alone can complete this work in 9 days.

Q:

9 girls working 7 hours a day can complete a piece of work in 15 day. In how many days can 6 girls working for 9 hours a day, complete the same piece of work?

A) 35/4 days B) 17.5 days
C) 19 3/4 days D) 37/3 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 17.5 days

Explanation:

Let the number of days be 'p' 

As the work is same, we know that

M1 x D1 x H1 = M2 x D2 x H2

Where M = Men, D = Days, H = Hours per day 

Here M1 = 9, D1 = 15, H1 = 7 

M2 = 6, D2 = p, H2 = 9 

=> 9 x 15 x 7 = 6 x p x 9 

=> p = 35/2 = 17.5 days.

Here M1 = 1, D1 = 6 min, W1 = 1 and M2 = M, D2 = 90 min, W2 = 1845

 

1 × 61 = M × 901845 

=> M = 123

Q:

If 6 men and 8 boys can do a piece of work in 10 days while 26 men and 48 boys can do the same in 2 days what is time taken by 15 men and 20 boys?

A) 4 days B) 6 days
C) 7 days D) 5 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 4 days

Explanation:

Given that 

6 men and 8 boys can do a piece of work in 10 days 

26 men and 48 boys can do the same in 2 days

 

As the work done is equal,

10(6M + 8B) = 2(26M + 48B)

60M + 80B = 52M + 96B

=> M = 2B

=> B = M/2 ……(1)

 

Now Put (1) in 15M + 20B

=> 15M + 10M = 25M

Now, 6M + 8B in 10 days

=> (6M + 4M) 10 = 100M

Then D(25M) = 100M

=> D = 4 days.

 => W = 32 

Therefore, the total number of women in the group = 32

Q:

P is 30% more efficient than Q. How much time will they, working together, take to complete a job which P alone could have done in 23 days?

A) 16 days B) 13 days
C) 15 days D) 12 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 13 days

Explanation:

Ratio of times taken by P & Q = 100 : 130 = 10:13

 

Let Q takes x days to do the work

Then, 10:13 :: 23:x

=> x = 23x13/10

=> x = 299/10

 

P's 1 day's work = 1/23

Q's 1 day's work = 10/299

(P+Q)'s 1 day's work = (1/23 + 10/299) = 23/299 = 1/13

Hence, P & Q together can complete the work in 13 days.

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

From the given data,

=> (2 M + 3W) 8 = (3M + 2W)7

=> 16M + 24W = 21M + 14 W

=> 10W = 5M

=> 2W = M

=> 14W × ? = 7W × 8

? = 4 days
