d.1:5

e.1:3

Direction (1-5)

Time taken to cover the distance downstream in Monday,

t₁ = 13× 50/ 100

= 6.5 hours.

Time taken to cover the distance upstream in Thursday,

t2 = 14× 50 /100 = 7 hours

The speed of stream,  = 6 km/h

The speed of motorboat in still water = y ( t2 + t1/ t2 − t1 )

= 6 ( 6.5 + 7 /6.5 − 7 ) = 6 ( 13.5 /0.5 )

= 162 km/h

Speed of boat in still water, x = 8 km/h

Speed of water current, y

= 3/ 4 × 8 = 6 km/h

Required distance = 12/100*50*14=84km

Downstream speed = 36/ (time taken in Friday)

= 36 /(16 × 50/ 100) =36/ 8 = 4.5 km/h

Upstream speed = 36/ (time taken during Tuesday)

= 36 /( 21 /100 × 50) = 36/ 10.5 = 3.42km/h

Speed of boat in still water = ½* (downstream speed + upstream speed)

= 1/2 (4.5 + 3.42)

= 1/2 (7.9)

= 3.95 km/h

Speed of stream = 1/ 2 (down speed – up speed)

= 1/ 2 (4.5 – 3.42)

=0.54

Required percentage = 0.54/3.95*100= 13.67%

The speed of the man, x = 5 km/h

The speed of water current, y = 2 km/h

Distance covered = 21/100*50*(5+2)= 73.5 km

Required amount = 73.5*11= Rs.808.5

Let the speed of the boat be 42x km/h and speed of current be 5x km/h

The boat goes downstream in (14 × 50 /100) h

= 7 h

Distance = speed × time

Distance = 7 × (42x + 5x)

= 47x × 7

Upstream speed = 42x – 5x

= 37x km/h

Time taken = 47x × 7/ 37x

= 8.89 h

Direction (6-10)

Given that, the ratio of time taken by the employees P and R= 1:2

If R takes 20 days to complete the work, then the number of days taken by P to complete the work= 10 days

Now, the part of the work completed by employees P and R in 1 day= (1/10+1/20) = 3/20

(i.e) The employees P and R can complete the work in 20/3 days.

Now, the Total amount received by P=945*20/3=Rs 6300

And one day wage of the employee R= 27360/24=Rs 1140

Then Total amount received by the employee R= 1140*20/3=Rs 7600

Hence total amount paid by the company= 6300+7600= Rs 13900

Number of days taken by the employee Q to finish the whole work= 18*100/75 =18* 4/3

= 24 days

Now remaining work= 1- ¾= ¼

Thus, ¼ of the work is done by O and Q in 4 days.

Then Whole work can be completed by O and Q in 16 days

Now, work done by O in one day= 1/16-1/24

= 1/48

Now the wage of the employee O for one day= 31860/27=Rs 1180

Then total annual salary received by the employee O for 48 days = 1180*48*12

= Rs 679680

One year salary of the employee Q = 810*24*12 = 233280

Required percentage= (436680/233280)*100

=187%

Since N and R worked together for 9 days,

The part of the work completed by N and R in 9 days= (1/15)*9=3/5

Now remaining work= 1-3/5= 2/5

(i.e) 2/5 part of the work is done by R in 8 days.

Then whole work will be done by R= 8*5/2

= 20 days

From the table, we have, the Monthly salary of R= Rs 27360

Then salary of the employee per day= 27360/24=Rs 1140

Hence total wage received by the employee R for 20 days= 1140*20=Rs 22800

Given that the employee M can finish the work in 240 hours. (i.e) 240/12= 20 days

Similarly, the employee Q can finish the work in 420 hours (i.e) 420/7 = 60 days

And the employee R can finish the work in 240 hours. (i.e) 240/8 = 30 days

The work was done by the employee in 2 days= 1/20*2= 1/10

Then the work was done by the employees M, Q and R=1/20+1/60+1/30

= 1/10

Thus work done in 3 days= 1/10+1/10

= 1/5

Hence The whole work can be completed in 3*5 days.(i.e) 15 days.

Given that, Work done by the employees P and N in one day= 1/30 and Q’s one day work= 1/60

Then work done by all the three employees in one day= (1/30+1/60)

= 1/20

Given that, P’s one-day work= work done by N and Q together in one day.

Then we have,

2* (P’s one day work) = 1/20

Then P’s one day work= 1/40

From this we have,

N’s one day work = 1/30-1/40

= 1/120

(i.e)  N alone can complete the work in 120 days.

Then required ratio= 40:120

= 1:3
