## 3. A can finish a piece work in 18 days and B can do the same work in half the time taken by A. So if they working together, what part of the same work can finished in a day?

**Answer:**

**Option B**

**Explanation :**

First find the 1 day work of both (A & B)

A's 1 day's work = 1/18

and

B's 1 day's work = 1/9 (B can do work in half time)

(A + B)'s 1 day's work = (1/18+1/9)

= (1+2)/18 = 3/18 = 1/6

so A & B together can do 1/6 of work in 1 day.
