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:

P alone can complete a piece of work in 6 days. Work done by Q alone in one day is equal to one-third of the work done by P alone in one day. In how many days can the work be completed if P and Q work together  ?

A) 5 (2/3) B) 6 (3/4 )
C) 4 (1/2) D) 3
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 4 (1/2)

Explanation:

Work done by P alone in one day = 1/6th of the total work done by Q alone in one day = 1/3(of that done by P in one day) = 1/3(1/6 of the total) = 1/18 of the total. 

 

Work done by P and Q, working together in one day = 1/6 + 1/18  = 4/18 = 2/9 

 

They would take 9/2 days = 4 (1/2) days to complete the work working together.

Q:

A can do a piece of work in 30 days. He works at it for 6 days and then B finishes it in 18 days. In what time can A and B together it ?

A) 14 1/2 days B) 11 days
C) 13 1/4 days D) 12 6/7 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 12 6/7 days

Explanation:

Let 'B' alone can do the work in 'x' days

6/30 + 18/x = 1

=> x = 22.5

 

1/30 + 1/22.5 = 7/90 

=> 90/7 = 12 6/7 days

Q:

Two persons K and L can complete a piece of work in 30 days and 45 days respectively. If they work together, what part of the work will be completed in 3 days ?

A) 1/6 B) 1/3
C) 2/3 D) 1/18
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 1/6

Explanation:

K's one day's work = 1/30
L's one day's work = 1/45
(K + L)'s one day's work = 1/30 + 1/45 = 1/18

The part of the work completed in 3 days = 3 (1/18) = 1/6.

Q:

If 34 men completed 2/5th of a work in 8 days working 9 hours a day. How many more man should be engaged to finish the rest of the work in 6 days working 9 hours a day ? 

A) 101 men B) 112 men
C) 102 men D) 120 men
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 102 men

Explanation:

From the above formula i.e (m1 x t1/w1) = (m2 x t2/w2)

so, [(34 x 8 x 9)/(2/5)] = [(M x 6 x 9)/(3/5)]

so, M = 136 men

 

Number of men to be added to finish the work = 136-34 = 102 men.

So, B takes 6 hours to finish the work.
