1. X is twice good a workman as Y and together they finish a piece of work in 18 days. In how

many days will X alone finish the work ?

Solution - According to the condition given if X is twice good a workman as Y then the time

taken by X to finish a particular work would be half of the time taken by Y to finish the same

work.

So if we suppose that Y takes 2k days to finish a work then X would take k days to finish the

same work.

Solving, 1/(2k) + 1/(k) = 1/18

k = 27 days

Answer - X would finish the work in 27 days.

2. If 10 men complete a work in 12 days. How many days would be taken by 18 men to

complete the same work ?

Solution - Suppose the time taken by 18 men to complete the same work is t days.

Using the concept of Mandays 10*12 = 18*t

t = 20/3 days

Answer - 18 men would take 20/3 days to complete the same work.

3. If 100 men can do 100 jobs in 100 days, 1 men can do one job in how many days ?

Solution - Using the concept M*D = W

(100*100)/(1*D) = 100/1

Solving we get D = 100 days

Answer - 1 men can do one job in 100 days.

4. 1 man or 2 boys or 3 girls can do a piece of work in 121 days. In how many days can one

man, one girl and one boy do the same work ?

Solution - Let one man does m units of work in 1 day.

Let one boy does b units of work in 1 day.

Let one girl does g units of work in 1 day.

m = W/121 , b= W/242 , g = W/ 363

So 1 man, 1 girl and 1 boy can do the same work in (W) / ((W/121) + (W/242) + (W/363)) = 66

Answer - So 1 man, 1 girl and 1 boy can do the same work in 66 days.

5. If the ratio of work efficiency of P & Q is 6:5 and that of Q & R is 6:5. If P can complete the

piece of work in 2 days, In how many days the same work can be completed by Q & R

separately ?

Solution - If the work efficiency of P & Q is 6:5 then time taken would be in the ratio 5:6

If the work efficiency of Q & R is 6:5 then time taken would be in the ratio 5:6

Let the time taken by P = 5K and by Q = 6K, where K is some constant.

5K = 2, So 6K = 12/5 Days

So the time taken by Q to complete the work is 12/5 days

Now let the time taken by Q = 5X and by R = 6X, where X is some constant.

Q = 12/5 days, So R = 72/25 days

Answer - So the time taken by R to complete the work is 72/25 days.

1. If a man A completes a work in 10 days & man B complete the same work in 15 days. In how

many days the work is completed if they work together ?

2. If X & Y completed a work together in 6 days. If X completed the same work in 10 days

alone. Then in how many days will Y complete the same work alone ?

3. If a particular work is completed by A,B,C in 10, 15 and 12 days respectively. In how many

days will the work be completed if all of them work together ?

4. If A & B can complete a piece of work in 12 days, B & C can do the same work in 15 days

and A & C can do the same work in 20 days. In how many days will A,B and C will finish the

work together?

5. X can do a piece of work in 10 days and Y in 15 days. Y starts doing the work on his own

and after working for 3 days he left. Now the work is to be completed X alone. What is the total

amount of days required to finish the respective work.

Ques 1. Mahesh takes twice the time taken by Ramesh to complete a job. Ramesh takes twice

the time taken by Suresh to complete the job. Suresh takes twice the time taken by Naresh to

complete the job. Two of the four when working together take 50% less of the time taken by

the other two together to complete the job. Find these two.

Solution - Let the time taken by Naresh to complete the job is t days.

Then the time taken by Suresh to complete the job is 2t days.

Then the time taken by Ramesh to complete the job is 4t days.

Then the time taken by Mahesh to complete the job is 8t days.

Time taken by Naresh & Ramesh to complete the job would be 1/((1/t) + (1/4t)) = 4t/5 days

Time taken by Mahesh & Suresh to complete the job would be 1/((1/8t) + (1/2t)) = 8t/5 days

Answer - Naresh and Ramesh

Ques 2. Alok takes m times the time taken by Bola and Chetan to complete a job. Bola takes m

times the time taken by Alok and Chetan to complete the job. Chetan takes m times the time

takes by Alok and Bola to complete the job. Find m.

Solution - Let the time taken by Alok to complete the job is a days.

Let the time taken by Chetan to complete the job is c days.

So according to first condition (1/b) + (1/c) = m/a

Equation 1

Equation 2

Equation 3

Answer is m = 2

Ques 3. Two men, three women and three boys can complete a job in 20 days. Four men and

nine women can complete the same job in 10 days. Find the ratio of the time taken by a

woman and a boy to complete the job.

Solution - Let the unit of work done by 1 man in 1 day is m units.

Let the unit of work done by 1 woman in 1 day is w units.

Let the unit of work done by 1 boy in 1 day is b units.

So the units of work completed by two men, 3 women and 3 boys in 20 days would be =

(2m+3w+3b)20 and the units of work completed by four men and nine women in 10 days would

be = (4m+9w)10.

As the work done in both the cases is equal (2m+3w+3b)20 = (4m+9w)10

60b = 30w

w/b = 60/30 = 2

Answer - As the ratio of the efficiency of a woman and a boy is 2/1 therefore the ratio of the

time taken by them to complete the same work is 2.

Ques 4. Sixty men can do a piece of work in 10 days. The same work is now done in the

following manner. On the first day one man starts the work and from the second day onwards

one more man joins the group on each day. If the work is completed in this fashion, in how

many days will the work be completed?

Solution - Let 1 man do 1 unit of work in one day.

On first day units of work completed is 1

On second day units of work completed is 2

On third day units of work completed is 3 and so on......

So in the first 34 days the work completed would be = 1+2+3+4+5..................34 = 34*35/2 = 595

units of work.

The remaining 5 units of work would be completed on the 35th day in 1/7th of the day.

Answer - The work would be completed in 34 1/7 days.
