# Twenty Women Can Do a Piece of Work in Sixteen Days. Sixteen Men Can Complete the Same Work in Fifteen Days. What is the Ratio Between the Capacity of a Man and a Woman? - Mathematics

MCQ

Twenty women can do a piece of work in sixteen days. Sixteen men can complete the same work in fifteen days. What is the ratio between the capacity of a man and a woman?

• 3 : 4

• 4 : 3

• 5 : 3

#### Solution

4 : 3
Explanation:
(20 x 16) women can complete the work in 1 day.

∴ 1 woman's 1 day's work = 1/320

( 16 x 15) men can complete the work in 1 day.

1 man's 1 day's work = 1/240

So the required ratio = 1/240:1/320=1/3:1/4=4:3
