Practice Questions
26. A does 1/4 of a work in 4 days. He is then assisted by B
and they together finish the remaining work in 6 days. B
alone can finish the whole work in:
(a) 9 days (b) 12 days
© 16 days (d) 20 days
Solution
A does 1/4th of the work in 4 days therefore A will complete the entire work in 16 days.
A and B do 3/4th of the work in 6 days
(1/16 + 1/b) * 6 =3/4 ( A alone has first finished 1/4th of the work in 4 days)
On solving the above equation we get B =16 days
Thus B = 9

Practice Questions
27. 25 men can reap a field in 20 days. When should 15
men leave the work if the whole field is to be reaped in
37½ days after they leave the work ?
(a) 10 days (b) 5 days
© 4 days (d) 7 days
Solution
15 men should leave the work after "X" Days
25 x 20 = 25 X x + 10 X (37.5 )
500  375 = 25 x => x =125/25 or x = 5
