Time and Work Problems with Solutions for Competitive Exams: 

Q.1. Worker A takes 8 hours to do a job. Worker B takes 10 hours to do the same job. How long should it take both A and B, working together but independently, to do the same job?

Solution: 

$$  A's \ same \ 1 \ hours's \ work = {1\over8} $$

   $$ B's \ same \ 1 \ hours's \ work = {1\over10} $$

$$ (A+B)'s \ same \ 1 \ hours's \ work = {1\over8}+{1\over10}={9\over40} $$

  $$∴ Both \ A \ and \ B \ will \ finish \ the \ work \ in {40\over9}=4{4\over9}days$$

Q.2. A and B together can complete a piece of work in 4 days. If A alone can complete the same work in 12 days, in how many days can B alone complete that work?

Solution:

$$  (A+B)'s \  1 \ days \ work = {1\over4} $$

   $$ A's \ 1 \ days \ work = {1\over12} $$

   $$ ∴B's \ 1 \ days \ work = {1\over4}-{1\over12} ={1\over6}$$

Hence, B alone can complete work in 6 days.

Q.3. A can do a piece of work in 7 days of 9 hours each and B can do it in 6 days of 7 hours each. How long will they take to do it, working together  hours a day ?

Solution:

A can complete the work in (7×9)=63 hours.

B can complete the work in (6×7)=42 hours.

∴ A’s 1 hour’s $$ Work \   = {1\over63}$$

and B’s 1 hour’s $$ Work \   = {1\over42}$$.

(A+B)’s 1 hours   $$ Work= \left({1\over63}+{1\over42}\right)={5\over126} $$

∴ Both will finish the $$ Work \ in  = \left({126\over5}\right)hrs$$

Number of days of  hrs   $$   each=\left({126\over5}×{5\over42}\right)=3 days $$

Q.4. A does a work in 10 days and B does the same work in 15 days. In how many days they together will do the same work?

Solution:

A’s 1 day’s $$ Work= {1\over10} $$

And B’s day’s $$ Work= {1\over15} $$

∴ (A+B)’s 1 day’s   $$ Work= \left({1\over10}+{1\over15}\right)={1\over6} $$

So, both together will finish the work in 6 days.

Q.5. A can finish a work in 18 days and B can do the same work in half the time taken by A. Then, working together, what part of the same work they can finish in a day?

Solution:

A’s 1 day’s $$ Work= {1\over18} $$

And B’s day’s $$ Work= {1\over9} $$

∴  (A+B)’s 1 day’s    $$ Work= \left({1\over18}+{1\over9}\right)={1\over6} $$
