b. 23 hours

c. 28 hours

d. 30 hours

1. Exp: Work done by B in 1 day = 1 - 1 = 7-5 = 1
10 14 70 35

So, B alone can do the work in 35 days.

2. Exp: Manu's one day's work = 1
90

Manju's one day's work = 1
30

Maya's one day's work = 1
45

Manu, Manju and Maya together can do the work = 1 + 1 + 1 = 1+3+2 = 1
90 30 45 90 15

So, They will complete the work in 15 days.

3. Exp: We have, M1D1H1 = M2D2H2

W1 W2

= 40*20*6 = 25*D2*4

200 300

D2= 40*20*6*300 = 24

200*25*4

4. Amit's one day's work= 1

15

Amit's 3 day's work = 1 *3 = 1
15 5

Work left= 1-1 = 4

5 5

Ananthu's one day's work= 1

25

Ananthu can do work in = 4 *25 = 20 days

5 1

So total days = 25+3 = 28 days

5. Exp: A's one day's work= 1

X

B's one day's work= 1

3x

A + B's one day's work= 1 + 1 = 1

x 3x 21

= 3+1 = 4 = 1

3x 3x 21

x = 21*4 = 28

6. Exp: We have, M1D1H1 = M2D2H2

So, 9*12*4= 6*D2*8

D2 = 9*12*4 = 9

6*8

7. Exp: Time taken by Rohit and Rohan = xy

x+y

=12*6 = 4 days

12+6

8. Exp: Sinu's one day's work = 1 - 1

50 100

= 2-1 = 1

100 100

Sinu's 6 day's work = 6* 1 = 3

100 50

Sinu completed 3 th of total work.

50

So, Sinu's share= 3 *250 = Rs. 15

50

9. Exp: (A+B)'s one day's work = 1

60

(B+C)'s one day's work = 1

120

(A+C)'s one day's work = 1

80

Adding we get, 2(A+B+C)' s one day's work= 1 + 1 + 1 = 28 = 14

60 120 80 720 365

(A+B+C)' s one day's work = 14*1 = 14

365*2 720

So, A's one day's work = 14 - 1 = 1

720 120 90

A alone can do the work in 90 days.

10. Exp: Renu's one day's work = 1

6

Suma's one day's work = 1 - 1 = 1

4 6 12

Suma can do it alone in 12 days.

11. Exp: (B+C)'s one day's work = 1 + 1 = 3

15 12 20

Work done by B and C in 2 days = 3* 2 = 3

20 10

Remaining work = 1- 3 = 7

10 10

1 work is done by A in 1 day.

20

So, 7 work is done by A in 20 * 7 = 14 days

10 10

12. Exp: Minu's one day's work = 1 - 1 + 1

3 6 9

= 1 - 5 = 1

3 18 18

Anu's wages: Binu's wages: Minu's wages = 1 : 1 : 1 = 6: 4: 2

6 9 18

Minu's share = Rs.4500* 2 = Rs.750

12

Anu's share = Rs.4500* 6 = Rs.2250

12

13. Exp: Ram + Krish + Bhim's work = 1

30

Ram and Krish's work= 1

40

Bhim's work = 1 - 1 = 1

30 40 120

14. Exp: We have, M1D1H1 = M2D2H2

3*120*12 = M2*120*9

M2 = 3*120*12 = 4

120*9

15. Exp: We have, M1D1 = M2D2

600*25= 300* D2

D2 = 600*25 = 50 days.

300

16. Exp: (2m + 4b)'s one day's work = 1

4

(5m + 6b)'s one day's work = 1

3

=> (8m + 16b)'s one day's work = (15m + 18b) 's one day's work

=> 7 men's work = 2 boy's work

So, we should be employ 5 more men to be completed the work.

17. Exp: A's one day's work : B's one day's work= 2:1

(A+B)'s one day's work= 1

12

B's one day's work= 1 *1 = 1

12 3 36

B alone can do the work in 36 days.

18. Exp: Second pipe is opened for 10 minutes. So , part of tank filled by the second pipe = 10/20=1/2.
So, 1 -1 = 1 tank is filled by first pipe. First pipe can fill 1 of tank in 1 * 12 = 6minutes.
2 2 2 2
So, the first pipe is opened for 6minutes.

19. Exp: Part of tank filled by all three pipes in one minute =

1 + 1 - 1 = 8+10-6 = 18-6

15 12 20 120 120

= 1

10

So, the tank becomes full in 10 minutes.

20. Exp: Let leak can empty the full tank in x hours.

1 - 1 = 1 => 1 - 1 = 1

12 x 20 12 20 x

5-3 = 1

60 30

x= 30 hours

Pipes & Cisterns

If there are 2 pipes A & B such that A (inlet pipe) & B (outlet pipe). Such that A can fill tank in 'a' minutes and B can empty the tank in 'b' minutes , then time taken to fill the tank if both are operated together = Bigger no/Difference of ratios

Eg: A can fill tank in 9 minutes, B can empty the tank in 18 minutes.. In what time the tank be filled, if both pipes work simultaneously?

Bigger no=18, Ratio=9:18=1:2

Time taken to fill the tank = 18/(2 - 1)

= 18 minutes

If 'a' is not a multiple of 'b', then time taken by A&B to fill the tank.

= (LCM)/(Difference of ratios)

Eg.: An inlet pipe can fill the tank in 30 minutes. B an outlet pipe can empty the tank in 45 minutes. In what time the tank be filled if both pipes work simultaneously?

Time taken to fill the tank= LCM = 90
= Ratio= 30:45=2:3
= 90/(3 - 2) = 90/1 = 90 minutes

If there are 3 pipes A, B & C, in which A, B are inlet pipes which takes a,b,minutes respectively to fill the tank and C an outlet pipe which takes c minutes to empty the tank

Time taken by them to fill the tank, if all of them are operated together.

= LCM of abc/ (LCM/a + LCM/b - LCM/c)

Eg: A, B two inlet pipes takes 15,18 minutes to fill the tank and C an oulet pipe takes 45 minutes to empty the tank respectively. In what time the tank be filled if all of them are operated together?

LCM=90
No of days= [90/(90/15 + 90/18 - 90/45)
= [90/(6+5-2)]
= [90/9]
= 10 minutes

Note: In case of division of money with respect to share of each person's work then share of A = bc/ab+bc+ac

In case of division of money with respect to share of each person's work then share of B = ac/ab+bc+ac
In case of division of money with respect to share of each person's work then share of C = ab/ab+bc+ac

Same as Share of A:(LCM/a)/ (LCM/a + LCM/b + LCM/c)
Share of B:(LCM/b)/ (LCM/a + LCM/b + LCM/c)
Share of C:(LCM/c)/ (LCM/a + LCM/b + LCM/c)

Eg: A,B,C can do a work in 15,20,45 days respectively. They get Rs 500 for their work. What is the share of A?

LCM = 180

Share of A = (LCM/a x Total amount)/LCM/a + LCM/b + LCM/c

= (180/15)/(180/15 +180/20 + 180/45)

= (12/25) * 500

= Rs.240
