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

Answer:   A) 36 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 = 162x8x = 24 days.
