  1. A and B can complete a piece of work in 10 and 16 days respectively. They both start working, and after working for 4 days, A left. What is the total number of day for which B worked?
    A) 35 days
    B) 40 days
    C) 28/5 days
    D) 48 days
    E) 48/5 days
    Answer & Solution
    E) 48/5 days
    Explanation:

    A+B 1 day work = 1/10 + 1/16 = 13/80
    They worked for 4 days, so work done in 4 days = 4 * 13/80 = 13/20
    Work left = 1 – 13/20 = 7/20
    B does 1/16 work in 1 day so 7/20 work in 7/20 * 16/1 = 28/5 days
    So total 4 + 28/5

  3. Two articles costs Rs 18,000. One of them is sold at 20% profit and other at 20% loss. It is found that the selling price of both articles is same. Find the ratio of the cost price of 1st article to 2nd article.

    x = 7200
    7200 : 10800 = 2 : 3
