Time & Work Mcqs

Q.  P and Q can do a work in 30 days. Q and R can do the same work in 24 days and R and P in 20 days. They started the work together, but Q and R left after 10 days. How many days more will P take to finish the work?

a. 10
b. 8
c. 18
d. 19


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Let work done by P in 1 day = p,
Work done by Q in 1 day = q,
Work done by R in 1 day = r
p + q = 1/30
q + r = 1/24
r + p = 1/20
Adding all the above, 2p + 2q + 2r = 1/30 + 1/24+ 1/20 = 15/120 = 1/8
=> p + q + r = 1/16
=> Work done by P,Q and R in 1 day = 1/16
Work done by P, Q and R in 10 days = 10 × (1/16) = 10/16 = 5/8
Remaining work = 1 = 5/8 = 3/8
Work done by P in 1 day = Work done by P,Q and R in 1 day – Work done by Q and R in 1 day
= 1/16 – 1/24 = 1/48
Number of days P needs to work to complete the remaining work = (3/8) / (1/48) = 18
