Aadesh alone can do a piece of work in 6 days and Bhavesh alone in 8 days. Aadesh and Bhavesh undertook to do it for Rs. 3200. With the help of Chetan, they completed the work in 3 days.

How much is to be paid to Chetan?

posted Jan 8, 2016

Chetan's 1 day work = 1/3 - (1/6 + 1/8) = 1/ 24

Aadesh's wages : Bhavesh's wages : Chetan's wages = 1/6 : 1/8 : 1/24 = 4 : 3 : 1

Chetan's payment for 3 days = ( 3 * 1/24 * 3200) = 400

AAdesh can do 1/6 work in 1 day
Bhavesh can do 1/8 work in 1 day
Both can do 1/6+1/8 i.e 7/24 work in 1 day
they can finish 21/24 i.e 7/8 work in 3 days
Chetan has to complete 1/8 work in 3 days
so his share in money is 3200/8 i.e 400 Rs
