Description : A and B together can complete a work in 24 days. A alone can complete it in 40 days. If B does the work only for half a day daily, then in how many days A and B together will complete the work? a) 24 days b) 15 days c) 21 days d) 19 days

Answer : A B’s 1 day’s work = (1/24 -1/40) =(5-3)/120 =2/120=>1/60 Now, (A + B)’s 1 day’s work = (1/40 +1/60) =(3+2)/120 =5/120 So, A and B together will complete the work in 120/5 = 24 days.

Answer :  D Let 1 female ‘s 1 day work= x Then 1 male’s 1 day work =x/2 And 1 child’s 1 day work =x/4 So 6x/2 + 8x +12x/4 =1/14 3x+8x+3x = 1/14 14x = 1/14 X=196 1 female alone can complete the work in 196 days So, to complete the work in 14 days number of female required = 14.
