### Question 1

A can harvest a field in 7 days. B can do the same work in 9 days. How much did A get if the farmer pays them a total amount of Rs. 4900 for a work that they together completed in 3 days?

### Question 2

A, B and C complete a work in 8, 18 and 19 days respectively. All three of them start the work together, but A leaves the work after 3 days. In how many days will the work be completed?

**A**

$5{115/148}$ days.

**B**

$6{115/148}$ days.

**C**

$7{115/148}$ days.

**D**

$8{115/148}$ days.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Use the shortcut formula. If A, B, C can independently complete the job in x, y and z days, and A leaves after n days, the work is completed in ${yz}/{y + z}$ × $(1 - n/x)$ days. Putting the various values x = 8, y = 18, z = 19, n = 3, and simplifying, we get ${855/148}$, which is same as: $5{115/148}$.

### Question 3

A can finish a work in 15 days. B can do the same work in 11 days. They work together for 4 days. The fraction of work that is left is?

### Question 4

A, B and C can independently complete a work in 18, 11 and 13 days respectively. First C starts the work, then A joined after 4 days, and B after 1 days. In how many days was the work completed?

**A**

$5{101/115}$ days.

**B**

$6{101/115}$ days.

**C**

$7{101/115}$ days.

**D**

$8{101/115}$ days.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Use the shortcut formula. If A, B, C can independently complete the job in x, y and z days, and A joins after n days, and B joins after m days, the work is completed in ${xyz}/{xy + yz + zx}$ × $(1 + n/x + m/y)$ days. Putting the various values x = 18, y = 11, z = 13, n = 4, m = 1, and simplifying, we get ${676/115}$, which is same as: $5{101/115}$.

### Question 5

A, B and C can independently complete a work in 4, 18 and 16 days respectively. B and C start the work together, but A joins them after 3 days. In how many days will the work be completed?

**A**

$4{40/53}$ days.

**B**

$5{40/53}$ days.

**C**

$6{40/53}$ days.

**D**

$7{40/53}$ days.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Use the shortcut formula. If A, B, C can independently complete the job in x, y and z days, and A joins after n days, the work is completed in ${xyz}/{xy + yz + zx}$ × $(1 + n/x)$ days. Putting the various values x = 4, y = 18, z = 16, n = 3, and simplifying, we get ${252/53}$, which is same as: $4{40/53}$.
