Time & Work Mcqs

Q.  Machine P can print one lakh books in 8 hours. Machine Q can print the same number of books in 10 hours while machine R can print the same in 12 hours. All the machines started printing at 9 A.M. Machine P is stopped at 11 A.M. and the remaining two machines complete work. Approximately at what time will the printing of one lakh books be completed?

a. 3 pm
b. 2 pm
c. 1:00 pm
d. 11 am


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Work done by P in 1 hour = 1/8
Work done by Q in 1 hour = 1/10
Work done by R in 1 hour = 1/12
Work done by P,Q and R in 1 hour = 1/8 + 1/10 + 1/12 = 37/120
Work done by Q and R in 1 hour = 1/10 + 1/12 = 22/120 = 11/60
From 9 am to 11 am, all the machines were operating.
Ie, they all operated for 2 hours and work completed = 2 × (37/120) = 37/60
Pending work = 1- 37/60 = 23/60
Hours taken by Q an R to complete the pending work = (23/60) / (11/60) = 23/11
which is approximately equal to 2
Hence the work will be completed approximately 2 hours after 11 am ; ie around 1 pm
