Difficult Time and Work Solved QuestionAptitude Discussion

 Q. A and B working together can finish a job in T days. If A works alone and completes the job, he will take T+5 days. If B works alone and completes the same job, he will take T+45 days. What is T?
 ✖ A. 25 Days ✖ B. 60 Days ✔ C. 15 Days ✖ D. None of these

Solution:
Option(C) is correct

When $A$ and $B$ work together, they will take $\sqrt{5}×15=\sqrt{225}=$ 15 days.

Where 5 and 45 are the extra time that $A$ and $B$ take to complete the job if they work alone compared to the time that they will take if they worked together.

It can also be solved by solving this equation

1/T+5 +1/T+45 =1/T

T=25
