ANSWERS WITH EXPLANATIONS

  • No. of days it will take for the work to be complete = 1/ (1/7)

 ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​  ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 7 days

  • Amount of work done by one man in one day = 1/10

Amount of work done by two men in one day = 1/10 + 1/10 = 2/10

 ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ =​​ 1/5

  • N one day, amount of work Kashish and Karan can finish = 1/50

In one day, amount of work Kashish can alone do = 1/70

In one day, amount of work Karan can alone do = (1/50 – 1/70)​​ = 1/175

Therefore, no. of days Karan will take alone to finish the work = 1/ (1/175) = 175 days

  • In one day, amount of work done by Akash = 1/10

In one day, amount of work done by Ashish = 1/20

In one day, work​​ done by Akash and Ashish​​ together​​ = [(1/10) + (1/20)] = 3/20

Therefore, days taken if they work together = 20/3 = 6. 66 days

  • In one day, amount of work done by A = 1/2

In one day, amount of work done by B =​​ 1/6

In one day, amount of work done by C = 1/4

In one day, amount of work done if they work together = [(1/2 + (1/6) + (1/4)] =​​ 11/12

Therefore days taken in finishing the work together = 12/11 = 1 day (approx.)

  • Portion of house painted by Prabal in one hour = 1/25

Portion of house painted by​​ Parthia​​ in one hour = 1/30

Portion of house painted by them together in one hour = 1/25 + 1/30 = 11/150​​ 

Portion of house painted by them together in 5 hours = 5*(11/150) = 11/30

Remaining work = 1- (11/30) = 19/30

Prabal can paint the remaining house in (19/30) * 25 =​​ 15.8 hours

  • One day work of Riya and Tia = ​​ 1/15

One day work of Tia and Sia = 1/20

One day work of Riya and Sia = 1/10

2​​ (Riya​​ + Tia + Sia)’s one day work = (1/15) +​​ (1/20) + (1/10)​​ 

 ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 13/60

(Riya​​ + Tia + Sia)’s one day work = 13/120

Together, they can​​ finish the work = 120/13 = 9. 23​​ days

  • Tap​​ A​​ fills 1/5 of the tank in one hour.

Tap B fills 1/7 of the tank in one hour.

Tap C empties 1/4 of​​ the tank in one hour.

​​ Thus, in 1 hour​​ [(1/5) +​​ (1/7)​​ – (1/4)]​​ th i.e. 13/140 of the tank is filled.

If all the three taps are opened together, the time taken to fill the tank = 140/13​​ 

 ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 10.76 Hours  ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ 

  • In one day, amount of work done by Lokesh = 1/2

In one day, amount of work done by Lalita = 1/5

In one day, work done by Lokesh and Lalita together = [(1/2) + (1/5)] =​​ 7/10

Therefore, days taken if they​​ work together = 10/7​​ =​​ 1.4​​ days
