Question 9 of 25
9. Question
A group of US planes can completely destroy Bughdad in 7 days. However 12 planes develop technical faults. The remaining now can do the job in 10 days. Find the original group strength.
Hint
We have W = work to be done = Destruction of the city
= X × 7 plane days, where X = original number of planes.
Also, W = (X – 12) × 10 plane days.
Now the work done is same in the two cases (destruction of same city)
⇒ X × 7 ≡ (X – 12) × 10
⇒ X = 40 planes.

Question 10 of 25
10. Question
12 men take 18 days to complete a job whereas 12 women in 18 days can complete ¾ of the same job. How many days will 10 men and 8 women together take to complete the same job?
Hint
12 M × 18 = 12 W × 18 × ⁴⁄₃
∴ W = ¾M
10M + 8W = 10M + 8 × ¾M = 16 M
∴ 16 men can complete the same work in

Question 11 of 25
11. Question
A can do ¾ of a work in 12 days. In how many days can he finish ⅛ of the work?

and time taken by Ritika alone
= days
∴ 1 day’s work is
⇒
⇒
⇒
⇒
⇒ 2x² + 16x = 16x + 72
⇒ 2x² = 72
⇒ x = 6 days

Question 15 of 25
15. Question
A 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 them in 12 hours. All the machines are started at 9 a.m. while machine P is closed at 11 a.m. and the remaining two machines complete the work. Approximately at what time will the work be finished?
Hint
(P + Q + R)’s 1 hour’s work
=
Work done by P, Q and R in 2 hours
=
Remaining work
=
(Q + R)’s 1 hour’s work
=
Now, ¹¹⁄₆₀work is done by Q and R in 1 hour.
So, ²³⁄₆₀ work will be done by Q and R in
hours ≈ 2 hours.
So, the work will be finished approximately 2 hours after 11 a.m., i.e., around 1 p.m.

Question 18 of 25
18. Question
Two men A and B working together complete a piece of work which it would have taken them 30 and 40 days respectively to complete if they worked separately. If they received a payment of Rs. 2,100, B’s share is :
Hint
If A and B work separately then A completes his work in 30 days and B completes his work in 40 days.
∴ Ratio of the days = 30: 40 = 3: 4
⇒ Ratio of the work of A and B = 4 : 3
∴ A´s share = ⁴⁄₇ and B’s share = ³⁄₇
Now, They received Rs. 2100( together).
∴ B will receive a payment of
Rs

A can build up a wall in 8 days while B can break it in 3 days. A has worked for 4 days and then B joined to work with A for another 2 days only. In how many days will A alone build up the remaining part of wall?
Hint
A’s one day’s work = ⅛th work
B’s one day’s work = ⅓rd work
∴ A’s 4 day’s work = 4 × ⅛ = ½ work
∴ In next two days, total wall
Remaining wall
Now, ⅛th wall is built up by A in one day.
∴ ¹¹⁄₁₂th wall is built up by A in
=
