Question

# A is thrice as good a workman as B and takes 10 days less to do a piece of work than B takes. B can do the work in _______.

A
12 days
B
15 days
C
20 days
D
30 days

Solution

## The correct option is D $$15$$ daysGiven, Work Efficiency ratio of A:B is 3:1Let B takes $$x days$$ to do the work. So according to the question, A takes $$x-10\: days$$ to do the same work. Time ratio and efficiency ratio are inversely proportional. So equating the ratios,$$\dfrac{x-10}{x}=\dfrac{1}{3}$$$$\implies x=15$$Therefore, B can finish the work alone in $$15\: days$$Mathematics
