QUESTION: 1

### A piece of work can be done by 6 men and 5 women in 6 days or 3 men and 4 women in 10 days. It can be done by 9 men and 15 women in how many days ?

Solution:

To calculate the answer we need to get 1 man per day work and 1 woman per day work.
Let 1 man 1 day work =x
and 1 woman 1 days work = y.
=> 6x+5y = 1/6
and 3x+4y = 1/10
On solving, we get x = 1/54 and y = 1/90
(9 men + 15 women)'s 1 days work =
(9/54) + (15/90) = 1/3
9 men and 15 women will finish the work in 3 days

QUESTION: 2

### A works twice as fast as B. if both of them can together finish a work in 12 days, B alone can do it in.

=3/2t_(1)
1day work of a and b =1/12_(2)
1/12=3/2t
t=18
b can do that work alone =18×2=36

If 3 men or 4 women can plough a field in 43 days, how long will 7 men and 5 women take to plough it.

Solution:
3 men or 4 women can plough the field in 43 days.

3 men = 4 women.

1 man = 4/3 women.

1 woman can plough in = 43 *4 days.

Hence,

43/3 women can plough = (43*4 *3) /43 = 12 days.
