Q:

Two boys and a girl can do a work in 5 days, while a boy and 2 girls can do it in 6 days. If the boy is paid at the rate of 28$ a week, what should be the wages of the girl a week ?

A) 24 $ B) 22 $
C) 16 $ D) 14 $

Answer:   C) 16 $



Explanation:

Let the 1 day work of a boy=b and a girl=g, then
2b + g = 1/5 ---(i) and
b + 2g = 1/6 ---(ii)
On solving (i) & (ii), b=7/90, g=2/45
As payment of work will be in proportion to capacity of work and a boy is paid $ 28/week,
so a girl will be paid 28×245790 = 16 $.
