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

Q:

4 men and 6 women can complete a work in 8 days, while 3 men and 7 women can complete it in 10 days. In how many days will 10 women complete it ?

A) 40 days B) 36 days
C) 32 days D) 34 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 40 days

Explanation:

Let 1 man's 1 day work = x and 1 woman's 1 day work = y.
Then, 4x + 6y = 1/8 and 3x + 7y = 1/10
Solving these two equations, we get:
x = 11/400 and y = 1/400
10 woman's 1 day work = (1/400 x 10) = 1/40.

Hence, 10 women will complete the work in 40 days.

Q:

Five men and nine women can do a piece of work in 10 days. Six men and twelve women can do the same work in 8 days. In how many days can three men and three women do the work  ?

A) 18 days B) 20 days
C) 16 days D) 14 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 20 days

Explanation:

(5m + 9w)10 = (6m + 12w)8

=> 50m + 90w = 48w + 96 w => 2m = 6w => 1m = 3w 5m + 9w = 5m + 3m = 8m

8 men can do the work in 10 days.

3m +3w = 3m + 1w = 4m

So, 4 men can do the work in (10 x 8)/4 = 20 days.
