# Problem on Time and Work

Question: A can finish a work in 18 days and B can do the same work in 15 days.B worked for 10 days and left the job.In how many days,A alone can finish the remaining work?

#### Solution:

Workdone by A in ‘1’ day =1/18Workdone by B in ‘1’ day =1/15

#### From question:

B worked for 10 days and how many days A alone finish the remaining work,Since B worked for 10 days,

Workdone by B in ‘10’ days =10/15

So we have to find the remaining work need to be finished,

Remaining work need to be finished =1-(10/15)=1-(2/3)=(3-2)/3=1/3

Remaining work=1/3

This remaining work (i.e) need to be finished by ‘A’alone which is asked in question

#### Given that ,

A can finish 1 work in 18 days .But here remaining work is only 1/3.

So, A finish 1/3 work in 18*(1/3)=18/3=6 days

#### Therefore, A alone can finish the remaining work in 6 days.

#### Tips:

For example a person named B has ability to finish a work in 15 days,Workdone by B in ‘1’ day =1/15

Workdone by B in ‘2’ days =2/15

Workdone by B in ‘3’days=3/15

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For example to find the remaining work:

To find the remaining work ,when B left the work in 2 days,

Workdone by B in ‘2’ days =2/15

Remaining work =1-(2/15)=13/15

Remaining work=13/15

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To find the remaining work ,when B left the work in 3days,

Workdone by B in ‘3’ days =3/15

Remaining work =1-(3/15)=12/15

Remaining work=12/15
