This time, our topic of discussion will be those problems in
which a number of workers i.e. men and women or men and boys are given a task
and we have to determine how much time they will take to perform the given
task. The type of questions as you already know, are asked in many competitive
exams and other exams.

Please read time and work shortcut type 1 and type 2 first before proceeding.

Please read time and work shortcut type 1 and type 2 first before proceeding.

Suppose we are given a problem like given below

Q: If 4 men or 6 boys can do a task in 12 days then 10 men
and 3 boys will do that task in how many days?

Now carefully read the question. In the first line, 4 men or
6 boys are given but the question is asked with 10 men and 3 boys means men and
boys combined.

If you do this question by its normal computational method,
then it will take time of about 2-3 minutes to solve. But I am giving you a
trick here to solve this type of question that will solve this question in
seconds. You just have to put the formula and you will get the answer. Is not
it so simple.

So we should learn the rule for this type of questions.

Rule:- if m1 men or b1 boys does a task in d1 days then m2
men and b2 boys will do it in

=(m1b1d1)/(m1b2+m2b1) days

So the
solution to the above problem will be

10 men
and 3 boys will do the work in

=(4*6*12)/(4*3+10*6) days

=24*12/(12+60) days

=4
days

So 10 men and 3 boys will do the same task in just 4 days.
This is the shortest trick you can find for this type of question. This type of
trick, you will only find on www.MeriView.in
