**Useful Formulae of Time and Work :**

**1.**If P1 persons working H1 a day can complete W1 units of work in D1 days, and P2 persons working for H2 a day can complete W2 units of work in D2 days then

**(P1.H1.D1) / W1 = (P2. H2. D2) / W2**

**2.**If the amount of work is not mentioned in either of the two cases then it should be treated as same in both the cases then

**P1. D1. H1 = P2. D2. H2**

**3.**Even if the working hours not mentioned in both the cases then H1 & H2 can be dropped

=>

**P1. D1 = P2. D2****4.**A can do a work in X days. If B is K times as efficient as A then B can do the work in X/K days. Both A and B together can do the work in

**((X / (K + 1)) days**

Now lets work with some practice problems. Try to solve these on your own and check with the given answers. You will get detailed solutions with explanations soon.

ReplyDeleteDoubt in Question No. 6. Kindly guide me in this ques Admin. Thanks.

ReplyDeleteHi

ReplyDeleteIs this for ibps clerk or po?

ReplyDeleteAnyone explain 3rd question plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

ReplyDeletewhere are the detailed solutions ?

ReplyDeletegr8 qustns

ReplyDelete150 men worked for 20 days

ReplyDeleteso unit of work done is 150*20 =3000

another 80 men joined after 20 days and the work finished in 50 days means 230 men worked for 30 days

so work done by 230 men 230*30=6900

so total unit. of work is 6900+3000=9900

so if the additional workers were not employed the work would finish in 9900/150=66

66-50=16 days behind schedule

given 3w=2m

ReplyDelete1w=2/3m

21w=21*2/3

=14m

now applying the formulaM1D1H1=M2D2H2

15*21*8=14*6*D

D=30 days

150 men worked for 20 days 150*20=3000 unit

ReplyDeleteanother 80 men added means 230 men worked for 30 days 230*30=6900

total 6900+3000=9900 unit if additional men not joined

150 men would take 9900/150=66 days 66-50 = 16 days behind

ss,,,u r crct :)

ReplyDeletePut the solution....

ReplyDeletecorrect

ReplyDelete150 men did 150*20=3000 unit work

ReplyDelete230 men did 230*30=6900 unit

total 9900 unit work

150 men would hv done the work in 9900/150=66 days

66-50 =16 behind

ReplyDelete5th ans is 6 days

ReplyDeletethnx mam

ReplyDeletePlz sumone explain 7,8,10 ques no...

ReplyDelete2 MEN OR 3 WOMEN =4 DAYS

ReplyDeleteTHEY WORK 1 MEN AND 1 WOMEN

SO TAKE AS 1/2 FOR MEN AND 1/3 FOR WOMEN

TAKING LCM YOU GET 5/6 AND TAKE RECIPROCAL 6/5*4=ANS 24/5 DAYS

1m=3w=5b

ReplyDelete1w=1/3m

1b=1/5m

1m+1b+1w

=1+1/3+1/5=23/15 m

1 man does in 46 days

23/15 man ll do in 46/23/15=30 days

1 w does in 18 days

ReplyDeletein 1 day 1/18 part

3 w in1 day ll do 1/6 part

1 c does in 24 days

in 1 day 1/24 part

4 c in 1 day 1/6 part

total work done by c and w =1/6+1/6=2/6 =1/3 part

remauning work 1-1/3=2/3

applying M1D1H1/W1=M2D2H2/W2

1*12/1=M*1/2/3=8 DAYS

2nd ques wrong ans given,ans is 14

ReplyDelete7men 12 days work is 84 then double d work is 168 and 168 work done in 8 days so 168/8 is 21 now 7 men already thr so 14 more required for d task.....do reply whether um right or wrong if wrong plz give explaination....thaks.....

Thankss ...jack

ReplyDeleteQ10 and Q12....anyone...please post the solution..

ReplyDeleteTY in advance

correct. becoz total 18 days and 18-12=6

ReplyDeleteu r right about it but what about 2nd quess it is 14 i think ....

ReplyDelete2men take 6 days it means 1 man take 12 days for d same task similarly 1 women take 18 days & 1child take 24 days lcm of 12:18:24 is 72 now divide

ReplyDeletemen 72/12 - 6

women 72/18 - 4

children 72/24 - 3

total work is to do now is 72 the lcm

3women × 4 + 4 children ×3

12 +12 =24 work done in one day

remaining work 72-24 =48

48/6 men case so ans is 8....

hey jack can u explain question no 10

ReplyDeletei hv explained below chk kimi kaur comment

ReplyDeleteques 12 please.

ReplyDeleteans 12 days will be correct if they calculated from 7th day onwards

ReplyDeletethey r doing work with 150 men for 20 days and 230 men for 30 days .if we employ 150 for 30 days including 80 men it will be 46 days, excluding 80 men (ie) 46-30= 16 more days will be required. do u understand?
