### Question 1

A, B and C can independently complete a work in 5, 15 and 13 days respectively. B and C start the work together, but A joins them after 2 days. In how many days will the work be completed?

**A**

$4{5/67}$ days.

**B**

$5{5/67}$ days.

**C**

$6{5/67}$ days.

**D**

$7{5/67}$ 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 = 5, y = 15, z = 13, n = 2, and simplifying, we get ${273/67}$, which is same as: $4{5/67}$.

### Question 2

A and B can complete a job in 16 and 64 days. They start together but A leaves after working for 6 days. How long would B take to finish the job counting from the day both A and B started together?

### Question 3

6 men and 4 women finish a job in 16 days. In how many days will 8 women and 12 men finish that job?

### Question 4

A can do a piece of work in 18 days. B is 20% more efficient than A. In how many days will they complete the work if they work together?

**A**

$8{2/11}$ days.

**B**

$8{3/11}$ days.

**C**

$8{4/11}$ days.

**D**

$8{5/11}$ days.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let us first calculate the one day work of B. One day work of A is given as $1/18$. If B is 20% efficient, then one day work of B is $1/18$ × $120/100$ = $1/15$. Putting x = 18 and y = 15 in the shortcut method, we get ${xy}/{x + y}$ = ${90/11}$, which is same as: $8{2/11}$.

### Question 5

If 80 men can do a task in 16 days, how many men are required to complete the task in 10 days?
