MCQ

Choose the most appropriate option.

A can do a piece of work in 8 days and B alone can do the same work in 10 days. A and B agreed to do the work together for Rs. 720. With the help of C, they finished the work in 4 days. How much C is to be paid?

• Rs. 80

• Rs. 70

• Rs. 82

• Rs. 72

#### Solution

Rs. 72

Explanation:

C's 1-day work=1/4-(1/8+1/10)

=1/4-9/40⇒1/40.

A's wages: B's wages: C's wages=1/8: 1/10 : 1/40=5:4:1

∴ C's share (for 4 days)=720/10xx1=72

= Rs. 72
