_{2}’ persons can do ‘W_{2}’ work in ‘D_{2}’days then we have a very special general formula in the relationship of

**M1 D1 W2 = M2 D2 W1**.**THEOREM:**Wages are distributed in proportion to the

work done and in indirect (or inverse) proportion to the time taken by the

individual.

work and wages problems with solutions are given below:

**Ex. 1: A can do a work in 6 days and B can do the same**

work in 5 days. The contract for the work is Rs 220. How much shall B get if

both of them work together?

work in 5 days. The contract for the work is Rs 220. How much shall B get if

both of them work together?

**Solution:**

**Method 1**: A’s 1 day’s work = 1/6;

B’s 1 day’s work = 1/5

Ratio of their wages = 1/6 : 1/5

= 5:6

B’s share = 220 / 5+6 * 6

= Rs. 120

**Method 2:**As wages distributed in inverse proportion of

number of days, their share should be in the ratio 5:6

B’s share = 220/11 * 6 = 120

**Ex. 2: A man can do a work in 10 days. With the help of a**

boy he can do the same work in 6 days. If they get Rs 50 for that work, what is

the share of that boy?

boy he can do the same work in 6 days. If they get Rs 50 for that work, what is

the share of that boy?

**Solution:**

The boy can do the work in 10*6 /

10-6 = 15 days.

10-6 = 15 days.

Man’s share : boy’s share = 15 :

10 = 3 : 2

10 = 3 : 2

Man’s share = 50/5 * 3 = Rs 30

**Ex. 3: A, B and C can do a work in 6, 8 and 12 days**

respectively. Doing that work together they get an amount of Rs. 1350. What is

the share of B in that amount?

respectively. Doing that work together they get an amount of Rs. 1350. What is

the share of B in that amount?

**Solution:**A’s one day’s work = 1/6

B’s one day’s work = 1/8

C’s one day’s work = 1/12

A’s share : B’s share : C’s share

= 1/6 : 1/8 : 1/12

= 1/6 : 1/8 : 1/12

Multiplying each ratio by the LCM

of their denominations, the rations become 4 : 3 : 2

of their denominations, the rations become 4 : 3 : 2

B’s share = 1350/9 * 3 = 450

trick:

B’s share : C’s share =

B’s time * C’s time : A’s time *

C’s time : A’s time * B’s time

C’s time : A’s time * B’s time

= 96 : 72 : 48 = 4 : 3 : 2

B’s share = 1350/9 * 3

= 450 Rs.

**Ex. 4: two men undertake to do a piece of work for Rs**

200. One alone could do it in 6 days. With the assistance of a boy they finish

it in 3 days. How should the money be divided?

200. One alone could do it in 6 days. With the assistance of a boy they finish

it in 3 days. How should the money be divided?

**Solution:**1

^{st}man’s 3 days’ work = 3/6

2

= 3/8

^{nd}man’s 3 days’ work= 3/8

The boy’s 3 days work = 1 – (3/6

+ 3/8) = 1/8

+ 3/8) = 1/8

Their share will be in the ratio

3/6 : 3/8 : 1/8 = 4 : 3 : 1

3/6 : 3/8 : 1/8 = 4 : 3 : 1

1

200/8 * 4 = Rs. 100

^{st}man’s share =200/8 * 4 = Rs. 100

2

200/8 * 3 = Rs 75

^{nd}man’s share =200/8 * 3 = Rs 75

The boy’s share = 200/8 * 1 = Rs.
