If Tap A fills the water tank in 9 hours and Tap to fills the water tank in 3 hours, how long will it take for the water tank to be completely filled?

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 â€“ 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)â€™s one day work = (1/15) + (1/20) + (1/10)

= 13/60

(Riya + Tia + Sia)â€™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) â€“ (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
