Q.  6 men and 8 women can complete a work in 10 days. 26 men and 48 women can finish the same work in 2 days. 15 men and 20 women can do the same work in_______days.

a. 4 days
b. 6 days
c. 2 days
d. 8 days


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Let work done by 1 man in 1 day = m and work done by 1 woman in 1 day = b
Work done by 6 men and 8 women in 1 day = 1/10
=> 6m + 8b = 1/10
=> 60m + 80b = 1 — (1)
Work done by 26 men and 48 women in 1 day = 1/2
=> 26m + 48b = ½
=> 52m + 96b = 1— (2)
Solving equation 1 and equation 2. We get m = 1/100 and b = 1/200
Work done by 15 men and 20 women in 1 day
= 15/100 + 20/200 =1/4
=> Time taken by 15 men and 20 women in doing the work = 4 days
