B's one day's work = 1/30
=> Their one day's work =
(1/20)+(1/30) = (3+2)/60 = 5/60 =

This is their one day's work

TOGETHER.
So, obviously the
number of days will be = 12
Short Cut : calculate Product/Sum
= (20 X 30) / 50 = 12 Thats it

6. A, B and C can
do a job in 20
days, 30 days and
60
days
respectively.
If
they
work
together, in how
many days will the
work be finished?
(1/20)+(1/30)+(1/60) =
(3+2+1)/60 = 6/60 = 1/10

So, the number of

usly to fill in an

completely?
Here, first two are Inlets and the
last one is Outlet,
So,

(1/10)+(1/15)-(1/12) =

(6+4-5)/60 = 5/60 = 1/12


So, our answer is 12

8. A and B can do
a job in 12 days. B

a job in 12 days. B
and C in 15 days
and C and A in 20
days. In how many
days can they
finish it if they
work
TOGETHER?
A+B = 12
B+C = 15
C+A = 20

So here, A+B's One day's work = >

1/

(A+B) = 1/12
B+C's one day's work => 1/
(B+C) = 1/15
C+A's one day's work = >
1/(C+A) = 1/20

Just Add them => 1/(


2A+2B+2C) = 12/60 = 1/5
=> 1/2(A+B+C) =
1/5
=>1/(A+B+C) =
1/10
[this is their one

day's work

7/17

2/6/2015

Time and Work - Problems | Gr8AmbitionZ

1/10

[this is their one day's work

TOGETHER]
So, they can finish it in 10
days :)

9. A and B can do
a job in 12 days. B
and C can do the
same job in 15
days. C and A in
20 days. In how
many days can A
alone finish the
whole task???
A+B = 1/12
B+C = 1/15
C+A = 1/20
Here we need A, so take a pair
which

is

NOT

HAVING

and subtract it from the others,


so, A+B-(B+C)+C+A = A+BB-C+C+A = 2A
But according to our Problem, 2A =
(1/12)-(1/15)+(1/20)
=>A = 1/30 (this
is A's one day work but
http://www.gr8ambitionz.com/2012/05/time-and-work-problems.html

we need A's

8/17

2/6/2015

Time and Work - Problems | Gr8AmbitionZ

is A's one day work but we need A's


total work)
=> A = 30
Days

10. A and B can


do a piece of work
in 20 days. A
alone can do it in
30 days. In how
many days can B
alone do it?
Per day work of A and B = 1/20
Work done by A= 1/30
So, B's one day work = 1/20 - 1/30
= (3-2)/60 = 1/60
=> B's work is 60 Days
Short Cut :

Product/diff =

600/10 = 60 :)

That's all for now friends. All the best


and Happy Reading :)

You might have confused with


the number 200. Its the
multiplication of 25 and 8.
And about the denominators in
the first case our target is 52 m
wall, in the second case 260 m
wall. We equate both of them
coz we know that the value of
(Strength X Time ) / Work = 1

10 laborers workd for 3 days and


made 120 toys...
10 laborers and some additional
men SHOULD made the
remaining 200 toys (320-120) in
2 days. So just equate those two
equations. Read basics so that
you can easily understand the
process.

Sorry for the late reply friend,


here is your explnation..
First have a close look at 8th
problem, so that you can easily
understand the 9th one.
In the question, they've asked
that "A's individual Work".. We
dont know that. But we do know
A+B's work, B+C's work and
C+D's work.
so here our target to eliminate B
and C... so we took that pair and
subtracted from the remaining
pairs...
Result =>
A+B-B-C+A+C
B and C got cancelled and two
As are there => 2A
now equate this to A's total work

now equate this to A's total work

have a look. And let us know if
you still feel its difficult.
