12 men can complete a work in 8 days. 16 women can complete the same work in 12 days. 8 men and 8 women started working and worked for 6 days. How many more men are to be added to complete the remaining work in 1 day?

A) 8 B) 12 C) 16 D) 24 Answer: B) 12 Explanation:

1 man's 1 day work =1/96 ; 1 woman's 1 day work = 1/192

Work done in 6 days=

6( 8 96 + 8 192 )=6× 1 8 = 3 4 6896+8192=6×18 =34

Remaining work = 1/4

(8 men +8 women)'s 1 day work =

1( 8 96 + 8 192 ) 1896+8192 =1/8

Remaining work =1/4 - 1/8 = 1/8

1/96 work is done in 1 day by 1 man

Therefore, 1/8 work will be done in 1 day by 96 x (1/8) =12 men

Answer: B) 12 Explanation:

1 man's 1 day work =1/96 ; 1 woman's 1 day work = 1/192

Work done in 6 days=6(896+8192)=6×18 =34

6896+8192=6×18=34 6896+8192=6×18=34

Remaining work = 1/4

(8 men +8 women)'s 1 day work = 1(896+8192)

1896+8192 1896+8192 =1/8

Remaining work =1/4 - 1/8 = 1/8

1/96 work is done in 1 day by 1 man

Therefore, 1/8 work will be done in 1 day by 96 x (1/8) =12 men

To complete the work =8 x12= 96 man-hours are required.

To complete the same work= 16 x 12= 192 woman- hours are required.

So 1 man- hour= 192/96= 2- woman -hours.( Or)

1 woman -hour= 1/2 man-hours

8 men+ 8 women= (8 +8/2)= 12 man - hours.

If they work 6-days the amount of work done= 12 x 6= 72 man - hours.

The remaining work consists of =(96–72)= 24

If 24- man-hours work is to be finished in 1- day then 24 men will be required.

Already 8 men + 8 women are working which is equivalent to 12- men.

So more men required = (24–12)= 12 =×=×=×=×=×=×=×=×=×=×=×=×=×=×=×=×

4 men can complete a piece of work in 18 days. 4 women can complete the same piece of work in 28 days. In how many days will 9 men and 12 women together complete the same piece of work?

4 men can finish the work in 18 days.

So, 1 man working alone will finish the work in 4×18 days or 72 days.

In 1 day, he will have finished 1/72 of the work.

4 women can finish the work in 28 days.

So, 1 woman working alone will finish the work in 4×28 days or 112 days.

In 1 day, she will have finished 1/112 of the work.

In 1 day, 9 men finish (9× 1/72) of the work or 1/8 of the work.

In 1 day, 12 women finish (12 × 1/112) of the work or 3/28 of the work.

Working together, 9 men and 12 women can finish (1/8 + 3/28) of the work in 1 day.

1/8 + 3/28 = 7/56 + 6/56 = 13/56 of the work.

**Given:**

12 men can complete a painting work in 8 days.

16 women can complete the same painting work in 12 days

8 men started painting the house.

After 6 days of painting, 2 men were replaced by 4 women

**Formula used:**

Work = Efficiency × Time

**Calculation:**

12 men can complete a painting work in 8 days = (12 × 8) = 96

16 women can complete the same painting work in 12 days = (16 × 12) = 192

The ratio of men and women = (96 : 192)

⇒ 1 : 2

Total work = (12 × 1 × 8) = 96 units

Now,

8 men started the painting for 6 days = (8 × 1 × 6) = 48 units

Remaining work = (96 – 48) = 48 units

2 men were replaced by 4 women = (4 × 2) = 8 women

Now,

Time taken to complete the remaining painting = (48/8)

⇒ 6 days

**∴ The required time is 6 days**
