Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 1

### A and B alone can do a piece of wok in 8 and 18 days respectively. In how many days the work will be completed if they both work on alternate days starting with B?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 1

A = 8 days, B = 18 days
Total work = LCM(8,18) = 72
So efficiency of A = 72/8 = 9, efficiency of B = 72/18 = 4
2 days work of (A+B) = 9+4 = 13
2*5(10) days work of (A+B) = 9+4 = 13*5 = 65
So remaining work = 72-65 = 7
Now A’s turn on 6th day, he will do remaining work(7) in 7/9 day
So total

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 2

### A, B and C can all together do piece of work in 10 days, in which B takes three times as long as A and C together do the work and C takes twice as long as A and B together take to do the work. In how many days B can alone do the work?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 2

(A+C) in x days so B completes in 3x days
then (1/x) + (1/3x) = 1/10
solve, x = 40/3
so B in 3x = 3*(40/3)= 40 days
OR
Given A+B+C = 10 and that B takes 3 times as A+C, so A+C is three times stronger than B
So this means that 4 times stronger can do work in 10 days
So 1 time stronger(B) in 4*10 = 40 days

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 3

### 20 men can complete a piece of work in 14 days. 7 men started the work and after 20 days, 7 more men joined the work. In how many days the remaining work will be completed?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 3

Let (7+7) complete remaining work in x days.
So 20*14 = 7*20 + 14*x
x = 10 days

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 4

20 men can complete a work in 14 days and 20 women can complete the same work in 18 days. 7 men and 9 women started the work. After working for some days, they were replaced by 10 men and 10 women who complete the remaining work in 9 days. How much work was completed by initially employed men and women?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 4

20 m in 14 days so 10 men in (20*14)/10 = 28 days
20 w in 18 days so 10 women in (20*18)/10 = 36 days
So (1/28 + 1/36)*9 = 4/7
So 1 – 4/7 = 3/7 work was done by 7 men and 9 women

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 5

A, B and C can alone complete a work in 10, 12 and 15 days respectively. A and C started the work and after working for 4 days, A left and B joined. In how many days the total work was completed?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 5

(A+C) = (1/10 + 1/15) = 1/6. They worked for 4 days so did (1/6)*4 = 2/3rd of work
Remaining work = 1 – 2/3 = 1/3
Now A left , B and C working
(B+C) = (1/12 + 1/15) = 9/60 = 3/20. They worked for x days and completed 1/3rd of work so (3/20)*x = 1/3, so x = 20/9 days
Total = 4 + 20/9

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 6

A, B and C can alone complete a work in 10, 12 and 15 days respectively. All started the work but B left the work 3 days before completion. How much work was then done by A and B together in the total work?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 6

Let work completed in x days, so A and C worked for all x days, and B for (x-3) days.
So
(1/10 + 1/15)*x + (1/12)*(x-3) = 1
Solve, x = 5 days
In 5 days, A did 5/10 = 1/2 of work
In (5-3) = 2 days, B did 2/12 = 1/6 of work
So total by A and B = (1/2 + 1/6) = 2/3

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 7

2 men and 3 women can together complete a piece of work in 4 days and 3 men and 2 women together can complete work in 3 days. In how many days 10 women will complete this work?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 7

2m + 3w = 4, 3m + 2w = 3
So 4(2m + 3w) = 3(3m + 2w)
8m + 12w = 9m + 6w
6w = 1m
Given 2m + 3w = 4, so 2*(6w) + 3w = 4, so 15 women in 4 days, so 10 women in (15*4)/10 = 6 days

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 8

A alone can complete a work in 5 days more than A+B together and B alone can complete a work in 45 days more than A+B together. Then in how many days A and B together can complete the work?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 8

Shortcut = √5×45 = 15
OR
Let (A+B) can do in x days, so
1/(x+5) + 1/(x+45) = 1/x
Solve, x2 = 225, x = 15

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 9

20 men can complete a work in 14 days and 20 women can complete the same work in 18 days. 8 men start the work and after working for 21 days, they are replaced by x women. If the remaining work is to be completed by x women in 9 days, then how many women should be employed?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 9

20 m in 14 days so 8 men in (20*14)/8 = 35 days
In 21 days 8 men complete (1/35)*21 = 3/5 work
Remaining work = 1 – 3/5 = 2/5
20 women do 1 work in 18 days so x women will do 2/5 work in 9 days
10*(2/5)*18 = x*1*9

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 10

A alone can complete a work in 21 days. If B is 40% more efficient than A, then in how many days A and B together can complete the work?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 10

Let efficiency of A is x, so of B = (140/100)*x = 7x/5
So ratio of efficiencies = x : 7x/5 = 5 : 7
So ratio of days = 7 : 5
A can do in 21 days, so 7y = 21, y = 3
So B can do in 5*3 = 15 days
A+B in (21*15)/(21+15) = 8 � days

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 11

A project manager hired 16 men to complete a project in 40 days. However after 30 days he realized that only 4/9 th of the work is complete. How many more men does he need to hire to complete the project on time ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 11

16*30 / 4/9 = M * 10/5/9
16*30*9/ 4 = M *10*9/5
1080 = 18M
M = 1080/18 = 60
Men required = 60 – 16 = 44

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 12

20 men can complete a piece of work in 15 days and 12 women can complete the same piece of work in 24 days. What is the ratio of amount of work done by 30 men in oneday to the amount of work done by 16 women in 1 day ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 12

20 men do 1 work in 15 days

Time taken by 30 men :-

=> (15 * 20)/30
=>  10 days

12 women do work in 24 days

Time taken by 16 women:-

=> (12 * 24) / 16
=>  18 days

Ratio =>  1/10: 1/18

=>  18 / 10

=> 9:5

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 13

X alone can do a piece of work in 5 days. Y can do the same piece of work in 4 days. X and Y are assigned to do the work for Rs.5000.They complete the work in 2 days with the help of Z. How much is to be paid to Z ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 13

Z’s one day work = ½ – [ 1/5+1/4] = 10-4+5/20 = 1/20
Ratio = 1/5:1/4:1/20 = 4/20 : 5/20 : 1/20 = 4:5:1
Z = 5000*1/10 = 500

3m+4w = ?
3(3m+4w) = 1/12
3m+4w = 1/36

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 15

P takes 6 days less than Q to finish the work individually. If P and Q working together complete the work in 4 days, then how many days are required by Q to complete the work alone ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 15

= 1/6 + 1/12
= 2+1/12 =3/12 = 1/4

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 16

If X, Y and Z can complete a work in 6 days. If X can work twice faster than Y and thrice faster than Z, then the no of days Z alone can complete the work is

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 16

1/x+1/2x+1/3x = 1/6
6+3+2/6x = 6
11/6x = 6
X = 11
Z = 3x = 33

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 17

If 20 men can do a piece of work in 42 days working 8 hours per day then how many men are required to complete the work, working 5 hours per day in 33 days ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 17

M = 20*42*8/5*33 = 40.72 = 41

Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 18

Three men, four women and six children can complete a work in 7 days. A woman does double the work a man does and a child does half the work a man does. How many women alone can complete this work in 7 days ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Time And Work- 5 - Question 18

2 men = 1 woman
1 man =1/2 woman
3 men =3/2 women
2 children = 1 man =1/2 woman
1 child =1/4 woman
6 children =6/4 =3/2 women
Now, three men, four women and six children
=3/2 + 4 +3/2 =3+8+3/2 = 14/2 = 7 women
