a) 8 4/5 days

b) 5 ¾ days

c) 6 2/3 days

d) 9 ½ days

e) None of these

Here work equal. So,

(6m + 5w)*10 = (4m + 7w)*12

60m + 50w = 48m + 84w

12m = 34w

6m = 17w

6 m + 5 w = 17 w + 5 w = 22 w

12 m + 6 w = 34 w + 6 w = 40 w

Women      days

22               10

40               ?

(22*10) = (40*x)

X = (220/40) = 5 ½ days

Efficiency of A and B = 125: 100 = 5: 4

The ratio of time taken by A and B = 4: 5 (4x, 5x)

(1/4x) + (1/5x) = 1/20

9x/(4x*5x) = 1/20

X = 9

The time taken by A and B = 4x, 5x = 36 and 45 days

Total units = 180 (LCM of 36, 45)

A’s one day work = 5 units

B’s one day work = 4 units

Work done in 2 days = 5 + 4 = 9 units

Work done in 40 days = 9*20 = 180 units

Work will be completed in 40 days.

(Or)

Number of days taken by both A and B working alternatively = 20* 2

= 40 days

(x-5) person can do whole work in x days

(x + 5) person can do, (75/100)*work in = (x – 11)

Whole work in = (x – 11)*(4/3)

(x – 5)*x = (x + 5) (x – 11)*(4/3)

3x2 – 15x = 4x2 – 24x – 220

X2 – 9x – 220 = 0

(x + 11) (x – 20) = 0

x = -11, 20

So, x = 20 days

Person        days

15               20

30               ?

(15*20) = 30*y

Y = 300/30 = 10 days

1 women’s 1 day wages = Total wages/(no of days*total women)

=>105000 / (35*20) = 150

1 men’s 1 day wages = 2*1 women’s 1 day wages = 2*150 = 300

Total men = 108000/(15*300) = 24 men

Ganga’s one day work = (1/12) days

Jothi’s one day work = (1/20) days

Santhosh’s one day work = (1/5) days

(Ganga + Jothi)’s one day work = (1/12) + (1/20) = 2/15

3 day work = (2/15)*3 = (2/5)

Remaining work is,

= > 1 – (2/5) = 3/5

(Ganga + Jothi + Santhosh)’s one day work,

= > (2/15) + (1/5) = 5/15 = 1/3 days

Whole work can be completed by three of them in 3 days.

According to the question,

(3/5)*3 = 9/5 days = 1 4/5 days

Required days = 3 days + 1 4/5 days = 4 4/5 days

Here work equal. So,

(7m + 9w)*10= (5m+5w)*15

70m + 90w = 75m + 75w

15w = 5m

3w = 1m

7 m + 9 w = 21 w + 9 w = 30 w

10 m + 8 w = 30 w + 8 w = 38 w

Women      days

30               10

38               ?

(30*10) = (38*x)

X = (300/38) = 7 17/19 days

(1/x) + (1/(x+3)) +1/20 = 1/5

(1/x) + (1/(x+3)) = 1/5 – 1/20

(2x + 3)/(x2 + 3x) = 3/20

40x + 60 = 3x2 + 9x

3x2 – 31x – 60 = 0

3x2 – 36x + 5x – 60 = 0

3x(x – 12) + 5(x – 12) = 0

(3x + 5) (x – 12) = 0

x = -5/3, 12 (Eliminate –ve value)

x = 12 days

Let x be the total number of days to complete the work,

x/18 + 5/30 + (x – 8)/24 = 1

x/18 + 1/6 + (x – 8)/24 = 1

4x + 12 + 3x – 24 = 72

7x – 12 = 72

7x = 84

x = 12 days

Total days to complete the work = 12 days

(1/15) + (1/12) + 1 boy = (1/5)

1 boy = (1/5) – [(1/15) + (1/12)]

1 boy = (1/5) – (3/20) = (4 – 3)/20 = 1/20

The share of two men and a boy = (1/15): (1/12): (1/20)

= > 4: 5: 3

12’s = 6000

1’s = 500

The share of boy = Rs. 1500

P can complete 3/5th of the work = 6 days

P can complete the whole work in = 6*(5/3) = 10 days

Q can complete 1/4th of the work = 5 days

Q can complete the whole work in =5*4 = 20 days

(P + Q)’s one day work = (1/10) + (1/20) = 3/20

P and Q together can complete the work = 20/3 days = 6 2/3 days
