# A Can-do 1/4 of Work in 5 Days and B Can Do 1/3 of the Same Work in 10 Days. Find the Number of Days in Which Both Working Together Will Complete the Work. - Mathematics

Sum

A can-do 1/4 of work in 5 days and B can do 1/3 of the same work in 10 days. Find the number of days in which both working together will complete the work.

#### Solution

A can-do 1/4 of work in = 5 days

A can-do 1 work in = 5 × 4 days

= 20 days

B can do 1/3 of work in = 10 days

B can do 1 work in = 10 × 3 days

= 30 days

A's 1-day work =1/20

B's 1-day work =1/30

(A+B)'s 1 day work =1/20+1/30

=(3+2)/60

=5/60

=1/12

∴ A and B working together will complete the work in = 12 days
