If X can do a piece of work in n days, work done by X in 1 day =1/n
If X does 1/n work in a day. X can finish the work in n days.
If X is thrice as good as Y in work,then

  • Ratio of work done by X and Y= 3: 1
  • Ratio of time taken to finish a work by X and Y = 1 : 3

    Q. A can do a piece of work in 90 days, B in 40 days and C in 12 days. They work for a day each in turn, i.e. first day A does it alone, second day B does it alone and 3rd day C does it alone. After that the cycle is repeated till the work is finished. They get Rs 240 for this job. If the wages are divided in proportion to the work each had done. Find the amount A will get?

      A’s 2 day work=1/90
      B’s 1 day work=1/40
      C’s 1 day work=1/12
      divide 240 in ratio 1/90:1/40:1/12
      LCM(of 90,40 12)=360
      A’a share=4*240/43 = Rs 22.32
      B’s share=9*240/43 = Rs 50.23
      C’s share=30*240/43 = Rs 167.44
