## Solutions for Time & Work Problems :

(1 & 2)

Let R earns = y
And P earns = y + x
So, Q earns = y – x
ATQ,
y – x + y + y + x = 1026
y = 342
Each person earns according to their efficiencies so
Q earns → (342/19) × 18 = 324
P earns = (342/19) x 20 = 360
Ratio of efficiency of P, R and Q = 20 : 19 : 18
Money per unit work = Rs.18

1) 3
Amount earned by R and P together in 5 days
Work done = (20 + 19) × 5 = 195
Money earned = 195 × 18 = Rs.3510

2) 1
Efficiency of S = (20+18) / 2= 19
Total work → 19 × 36
Days taken by P, Q and R to do that work
⇒(19×36) / (20+19+18) = 12 days
Q’s earning ⇒ 12 × 324 = Rs. 3888

3) 2
(X+4) men can complete work in 2X days
⇒ 1 man can complete same work in 2X(X+4) days
(X+12) women can complete work in (X+8) days
⇒ 1 woman can complete same work in (X+8)(X+12) days
Now ratio of efficiency of men to women is 5 : 4
⇒ Ratio of days taken by men to women is 4 : 5
So, 4/5 = ((2X(X+4)) / ((X+8) (X+12)
⇒ 2(𝑋^2 + 20𝑋 + 96) = 5𝑋(𝑋 + 4)
⇒ 2𝑋^2 + 40𝑋 + 192 = 5𝑋^2 + 20𝑋
⇒ 3𝑋^2− 20𝑋 − 192 = 0
⇒ 3𝑋^2 − 36𝑋 + 16𝑋 − 192 = 0
⇒ 3𝑋(𝑋 − 12) + 16(𝑋 − 12) = 0
⇒ (3𝑋 + 16)(𝑋 − 12) = 0
⇒ 𝑋 = 12,−(16/3)
12 men can complete work in (16×24)/12 = 32 𝑑𝑎𝑦𝑠
15 women can complete work in (24×20)/15 = 32 𝑑𝑎𝑦𝑠
Required time = (32×32) / (32+32) = 16 𝑑𝑎𝑦s

4) 5
Let, pipe A and pipe B alone can fill the tank in x and y hours respectively.
ATQ,
(1/x)+(1/y) = 1/12 … (i)
and, (2/x) + (1.5/y) = 1/7… (ii)
On solving (i) and (ii)
x = 28 hour ⇒ y = 21 hour
Capacity of cistern = 28 × 60 × 2.5 = 4200 liter

5) 2
Let A and B can do 3𝑥 and 4𝑥 unit of work in one day.
So,
Total work = (3𝑥 + 4𝑥) × 8 = 56𝑥
(A + B) two day work = 7𝑥 × 2 = 14𝑥
Remaining work = 42𝑥
In 6 days B will complete = 6 × 4𝑥 = 24𝑥 units
So, remaining 18𝑥 units are completed by C in 6 day So,
56𝑥 unit will be completed in = (56x/18x)/(18x/6) = 56/3 days

6) 3
A = 45 hr
A : B = 100 : 150 = 2 : 3
Total capacity of tank = 45 × 2 = 90 liter
C = (90/3)– 7.5 = 22.5 hr
C efficiency = 90/22.5 = 4ℓ/hr
According to question ⇒ (5x) / (4(X+9)) = 1/2
⇒ 10X – 4X = 36
X = 6 hr

7) 2 C takes = (576/(8+9)) + (36/17) = 612/7 = 36 days
Efficiency of C = 576/367 = 16 units/days
When First day (A and B) and second day (B and C) work alternatively
Two day work = (A and B) one day work and (B and C) one day work = (8 + 9) + (9 + 16) = 17 + 25 = 42 units
In 26 day = (26/2)× 42 = 546 units
(A and B) on 27th day = 17 units
After 27 days remaining work = (576 – 546 – 17) = 13 units
13 units work done by (B and C) on 28th day = 13/25
Total time = (27 + (13/25)) = 27 13/25 days

8) 4

A, B, C and D worked for 2 days together after that A leave and B, C and D worked alternatively for 10 days starting from B
∴ B worked for 4 days, C for 3 days, and D for 3 days.
Total days A worked = 2
Total days B worked = 4 + 2 = 6
Total days C worked = 3 + 2 = 5
Total days D worked = 3 + 2 = 5
Let, their alone time to complete the work is 4x, 3x, 2x and 5x
respectively.
∴ (2/4x) + (6/3x) + (5/2x) + (5/5x)= 1
⇒ (30+120+150+60) / 60𝑥 = 1
⇒ 𝑥 = 360/60 = 6
‘A’ can complete the work in 4 × 6 = 24 days
‘C’ can complete the work in 2 × 6 = 12 days
Required time = (12×24) / (12+24) = (12×24) /36 = 8 days

9) 1
Ratio of efficiency of Arun, Yash and Rana is 6 : 4 : 5
Total work done by them in 1 day
= (6 + 4 + 5) units = (15) units.
Let they estimate 𝑥 days to complete the work.
Then total work = 15𝑥
But Rana’s 1-day work is only 40%, i.e. (40/100)× 5 = 2 unit
The work done by them in actual
= (6 + 4 + 2) (x + 20) = 12(x + 20)
∴ 15𝑥 = 12𝑥 + 240
3𝑥 = 240
𝑥 = 80
Hence, estimated days are 80.
