**Given:**

Time taken by A and B = 6 days

Time taken by A = 10 days

**Formula used:**

Total work = Time taken × Efficiency

**Calculation:**

L.C.M of (6 and 10) = 30 = Total work

Efficiency of A and B = 30/6 = 5 units/day

Efficiency of B = 30/10 = 3 units/day

Efficiency of B = (5 – 3) units/day

⇒ 2 units/day

Time taken by B = 30/2 days

⇒ 15 days

**∴ B will complete the work in 15 days**

A can do a piece of work in 4 days. B can do it in 5 days. With the assistance of C, they completed the work in 2 days. In how many days can C, alone, do it?

Easiest way to do this problem

A does the work in 4 days. So A does 25% in a day.

B does work in 5 days, B does 20% in a day.

In 2 days A and B do 2*(25+20) = 90% of the work.

Remaining work is 10% for C which C does in 2 days or 5% per day.

Hence C would take 100/5= 20 days to do it alone.

Hope you found this useful.

B does 1/6th of the work per day. A does 1/10th. Together, they do:

1/10 + 1/6=3/30 + 5/30=8/30=4/15

1/ 4/15=15/4 days working together

Pradnyesh Prabhu

We assume that work 30 units to complete.

B completes 5 units per day ~ 6 days to complete the work. Similarly A completes 3 units per day ~ 10 days to complete the work.

Together they complete 5+3=8 units per day. No of days required to complete the task is 30/8 days.

Take the harmonic mean, divided by 2:

1 1 6 + 1 10 = 15 4 =3.75 116+110=154=3.75

They need 3.75 days to complete the work together.

Why does that work? Convert the days into working speed (which is inversely proportional to the days each worker needs, we use 1 as the proportionality factor here, i.e. a simple reciprocal). Clearly, the working speeds of the two can be added together to get their total speed. Take the reciprocal again to get the number of days they need when working together.

So: Convert each time to speed, add the speeds and convert the sum back to time.

Work done in one day = Efficiency

Efficiency of A = 1/6

Efficiency of B = 1/10

Total Efficiency = Efficiency of A + Efficiency of B = 1/6 + 1/10 = 4/15.

Total Time = 1 / Efficiency = 15/4 = 3.75

You already state the answer. “A and b complete a work in 6 days”, fewer than A alone who takes 10. What are you asking?

If it is software development, it would take 6 months to complete the work. The first 5+ months would be in meetings and developing work plans. Then, the annoyed boss would get rid of everyone but B and B would get the work done.

Read “The Mythical Man Month” by Fred Brooks.

If you are thinking some other field, it would take 6 days since the boss would fire A for being slow.
