QUESTION: 11

(Q.no: 11-15). Refer to the table and answer the given questions.
NA refers the data which is not needed for a particular question. The number of working days of A, B, C, D is given below and some of them are missing. Take the data of the first row for the first question and the second row for the second question and so on. A started a work alone and then B joined her 5 days before actual completion of the work. For how many days A worked alone?

Solution:

Efficiency (A : B) = 5 : 4
Number of days(A : B) = 4x : 5x = 4x : 25
∴ Number of days required by A to finish the work alone = 4x
= 4 x 5 = 20.
A and B work together for last 5 days = 5 x 9 = 45%
Efficiency of A = 5% and B’s efficiency = 4%
∴ No. of days taken by A to complete 55% work = 55/5 = 11days

QUESTION: 12

(Q.no: 11-15). Refer to the table and answer the given questions.
NA refers the data which is not needed for a particular question. The number of working days of A, B, C, D is given below and some of them are missing. Take the data of the first row for the first question and the second row for the second question and so on. Working together B and C take 50% more number of days than A, B and C together take and A and B working together, take 8/3 more number of days than A, B and C take together. If A, B and C all have worked together till the completion of the work and B has received Rs.120 out of total earnings of Rs. 480 then in how many days did A, B and C together complete the whole work?

Solution:

The days ratio of (A + B + C) : (B + C) = X:3X/2 = 2X:3x;
Efficiency ratio = 3X:2X
Efficiency of A = x.
(480/3X) = Rs.160
Amount received by B = Rs.120 & C = 200
160:120:200 =4:3:5
1/4:1/3:1/5= 15:20:12;
(1/15+1/12+1/20)*Y = 1
Y = 5 days

QUESTION: 13

(Q.no: 11-15). Refer to the table and answer the given questions.
NA refers the data which is not needed for a particular question. The number of working days of A, B, C, D is given below and some of them are missing. Take the data of the first row for the first question and the second row for the second question and so on. All of them started to work together but A leaves after 4 days. B leaves the job 3 days before the completion of the work. How long would the work last?

Solution:

Let the work lasted for x days,
A’s 4 day’s work + B (x – 3) day’s work + C’s x day’s work = 1
⇒ (4/16) + (x – 3) / (64/5) + x/32 = 1
⇒ 5(x – 3)/64 + x/32 = 1 – 1/4
⇒ [5(x – 3) + 2x] / 64 = 3/4
⇒ 7x – 15 = 48
∴ x = (48 + 15)/7 = 63/7 = 9 days

QUESTION: 14

(Q.no: 11-15). Refer to the table and answer the given questions.
NA refers the data which is not needed for a particular question. The number of working days of A, B, C, D is given below and some of them are missing. Take the data of the first row for the first question and the second row for the second question and so on. C started the work and left after some days, when 25% work was done. After it D joined and completed it working for 25 days. In how many days C and D can do the complete work, working together?

Solution:

Efficiency of C = (100/50) = 2%
Rest work = 75%
∴ Efficiency of D = 75/25 = 3%
∴ Combined efficiency of C and D = 5%
∴ Number of days required by C and D to work together = 100/5 = 20 days.

QUESTION: 15

(Q.no: 11-15). Refer to the table and answer the given questions.
NA refers the data which is not needed for a particular question. The number of working days of A, B, C, D is given below and some of them are missing.

What is the total number of days in which they had completed the work?

Solution:

Efficiency of B and C = 11.11 + 5.55 = 16.66%
Work done in 3 days = 3 x 16.66 = 50%
Rest work done by B, C and D = 50/50 = 1 day
Work can be completed in 4 days.
