**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

**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**There are 5 white, 5 black and 5 green balls in a bag. Three balls are drawn at random. What is the probability that 2 are green**
