Basic Maths Mcqs

Q.  P can do a work in 24 days. Q can do the same work in 9 days and R can do the same in 12 days. Q and R start the work and leave after 3 days. P finishes the remaining work in_________days.

a. 10
b. 9
c. 11
d. 12


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Work done by P in 1 day = 1/24
Work done by Q in 1 day = 1/9
Work done by R in 1 day = 1/12
Work done by Q and R in 1 day = 1/9 + 1/12 = 7/36
Work done by Q and R in 3 days = 3×7/36 = 7/12
Remaining work = 1 – 7/12 = 5/12
Number of days in which P can finish the remaining work = (5/12) / (1/24) = 10
