31. Ronald and Elan are working on an assignment. Ronald takes 6 hours to type 32 pages on a computer, while Elan takes 5 hours to type 40 pages. How much time will they take, working together on two different computers to type an assignment of 110 pages ?

| | | |

Explanation:

Number of pages typed by ronald in 1 hour = 32/6 = 16/3.
Number of pages typed by elan in 1 hour = 40/5 = 8.
Number of pages typed by both in 1 hour = (16/3+8) = 40/3.
Time taken by both to type 110 pages = (110*3/40)hrs = 8 1/4hrs = 8 hrs 15 min.

33. On Monday a banker processed a batch of cheques, on Tuesday she processed three times as many, and on Wednesday she processed 4000 cheques. In the three days, she processed 16000 cheques. How many did she process on Tuesday?

| | | |

Explanation:

let monday be m
then tuesday=3m
and they have given wednesday as 4000 cheques
so total three days she processed 16000 cheques i.e
m+3m+4000=16000
4m+4000=16000
4m=12000
m=3000.
so she processed cheques on tuesday=3*3000=9000.

36. Here 10 programers, type 10 lines with in 10 minutes then 60 lines can type within 60 minutes. How many programmers are needed?

| | | |

Explanation:

10 lines - 10 minutes - 10 programmers are needed
10 lines - 1minute - 10*10=100 programmers needed. (Direct variation)
1 line - 1 minute - 100/10=10 programmers needed. ( Indirect variation)
1 line -60 minutes - 10/60 programmers needed. ( Indirect variation)
60 lines-60 minutes - (10*60)/60=10 programmers needed. (Direct variation)

man can do work in 10 days
man + boy can do a work in =6 days
so work done by man in 1 day is 6
and work done by boy in 1 day is 4.
so share of boy will be (4/10) * 50= 20 Rs.

40. One man can do a piece of work in 10 days. one boy join him & he completes the work in 6 days .If the man gets 50 rs for his work then what will be the share of the boy ?

| | | |

Explanation:

Lets assume Boy 1 day work = 1/x.
Work of Man in 1 day = 1/10.
Work finished in 6 days.
=> (1/10)+(1/x)=1/6
=> 1/x = 1/6 - 1/10
=> x = 15
So Ratio of their work (Man & Boy) = 1/10:1/15 = 3:2.
Then Boy's share = 2*50/(3+2)=Rs.20.
