### Question 5

A, B and C can independently complete a work in 19, 9 and 18 days respectively. First C starts the work, then A joined after 5 days, and B after 9 days. In how many days was the work completed?

**A**

$10{8/25}$ days.

**B**

$11{8/25}$ days.

**C**

$12{8/25}$ days.

**D**

$13{8/25}$ 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 = 19, y = 9, z = 18, n = 5, m = 9, and simplifying, we get ${258/25}$, which is same as: $10{8/25}$.
