X and Y will together complete the work in 40/3 = 13 1/3 days. Y¶s 1 day¶s work=1/20 (X+Y)¶s 1 day¶s work = (1/40+1/20) = 3/40. 4/5 work is done by Y in 16 days. Hence.

Time and Work  Problem:10 4 men and 6 women can complete a work in 8 days. In how many days will 10 women complete it? . while 3 men and 7 women can complete it in 10 days.

4x + 6y = 1/8 and 3x + 7y = 1/10 Solving these two equations.Time and Work Solution:10 Let 1 man¶s 1 day¶s work = x and 1 woman¶s 1 day¶s work = y Then. y = 1/40 1 woman¶s 1 day¶s work = 1/400 => 10 women¶s 1 day¶s work = (1/400 * 10) = 1/40 Hence. 10 women will complete the work in 40 days. we get: x = 11/400. .
