Basic Maths Mcqs

Q.  P can lay railway track between two stations in 16 days. Q can do the same job in 12 days. With the help of R, they completes the job in 4 days. How much days does it take for R alone to complete the work?

a. 9(3/5) days
b. 9(1/5) days
c. 9(2/5) days
d. 10 days


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Amount of work P can do in 1 day = 1/16
Amount of work Q can do in 1 day = 1/12
Amount of work P, Q and R can together do in 1 day = 1/4
Amount of work R can do in 1 day = 1/4 – (1/16 + 1/12) = 3/16 – 1/12 = 5/48
=> Hence R can do the job on 48/5 days = 9 (3/5) days
