# A, B and C Can Do a Piece of Work in 20, 30 and 60 Days, Respectively. in How Many Days Can a Do the Work, If He is Assisted by B and C on Every Third Day? - Mathematics

MCQ

A, B and C can do a piece of work in 20, 30 and 60 days, respectively. In how many days can A do the work, if he is assisted by B and C on every third day?

• 12 days

• 15 days

• 16 days

• 18 days

#### Solution

15 days

Explanation:

A's 2 day's work = (1/20 xx 2) = 1/10

(A + B + C)'s 1 day's work = (1/20 + 1/30 + 1/60) = 6/60 = 1/10

Work done in 3 days = (1/10 + 1/10) = 1/5

Now, 1/5 work is done in 3 days

∴ Whole work will be done in (3 × 5) = 15 days.
