Time and Work problems

How to solve a GATE level long Work Time problem analytically in a few steps 1


At the first look, this long-worded work time problem seemed to be a problem of two workers working together to be solved using standard mathematical deductions, but the hidden depths in this real life work place problem could have been discovered as well as solution reached quickly in mind only with analytical approach that is followed perhaps everyday in such real life work place problem situations...

How to solve arithmetic boundary condition problems in a few simple steps


A simple or compound event (consisting of more than one event) goes on happening systematically at regular intervals till a point just before the end. With each occurrence of the event problem parameters change. The end is reached before the full impact of the event along with the change can happen. This is the boundary to be found out before solving the problem...

How to solve Time and Work problems in simpler steps, type 2 brief


In 42 days 40 men complete a work. As it happened, instead of all of them working together to finish the job, they started working together, but at the end of every 10th day 5 men left. In how many days would then the work be completed? Rich time and work concept of Mandays technique along with natural number concepts deliver speedy solution...

How to solve Time and Work problems in simpler steps, type 1 brief


C and A can do a piece of work in 20 days, B and C in 24 days, and A and B in 30 days. B and C leave after three of them work together for 10 days. In how many more days would A complete the work? Using rich concept of Work rate technique and solving the problem as far as possible in mind, without writing anything on paper, results in within a minute solution...

SSC CGL Tier II level Solution Set 10, Time-work Work-wages Pipes-cisterns 1

thumb ssc cgl tier2 level solution set 10 time-work work-wages pipes-cisterns 1

This is the 10th solution set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL Tier II exam and the 1st on topics Time-work, Work-wages and Pipes-cisterns. For maximum gains, the test should be taken first, that is obvious. But more importantly, to absorb the concepts, techniques and deductive reasoning elaborated through these solutions, one must solve many problems in a systematic manner using this conceptual analytical approach. One can learn well only by practicing learning by doing...
