Time and Work Aptitude Concepts and FormulasPoints to Remember1) If a man can do a piece of work in n days, work done by him in one day =part of total work or he will finish work in one day. 2) If a man completes work in one day, he will complete the entire work in n days. 3) If A can complete a piece of work in X days and B can complete the same work in Y days, both A and B working together can finish the same work indays. 4) If A is thrice as good as workman as B or A can work three times faster than B, the ratio of work done by A and B for the same duration of time will be = 3 : 1. And the ratio of time taken by A and B to finish the same amount of work will be = 1: 3. 5) A, B and C can do a work in D1, D2 and D3 days respectively. If they work for X1, X2 and X3 days respectively;
6) If A, B, C can do a piece of work in X, Y, and Z days respectively, if they work together they can do the same work indays. 7) A and B working together can do a work in X days. If A alone can do the same work in Y days, B alone can do the same work indays. 8) A and B working together can finish a piece of work in X days, B and C working together can finish the same work in Y days and C and A in Z days. Then;
9) A can do a work in X days. If B is P times efficient than A, A and B working together can do the work indays. 10) A and B working together can complete a work in X days. If B is P times efficient than A;
11) P working alone takes X days more to do a work than P and Q working together takes to do the same work. And, Q working alone takes Y days more to do the same work than P and Q working together takes to finish the same work. Then P and Q working together can finish the same work in √XY days. 12) A is P times more efficient than B and able to finish the work in X days less than B, then
13) If A completes part of a work in X days,part of the same work he can complete indays. 14) There are two groups of workers with same efficiency. In one group M1 workers can do W1 work in D1 days or time. In the second group M2 workers can do W2 work in D2 days or time.Then; M1 D1 W2 = M2 D2 W1 15) There are two groups of workers with the same efficiency. In one group M1 workers can do W1 work in D1 time or days working T1 hours a day. In the second group, M2 workers can do W2 work in D2 time or days working T2 hours in a day. Then; M1 D1 T1 W2 = M2 D2 T2 W1
Therefore, ED = constant E1D1 = E2D2 More men will take fewer days and fewer men will take more days to complete a given work. 16) Wages are directly proportional to the work done by the individual and inversely proportional to the time taken by the individual. Total wages = One person's one day's wage * number of persons* number of days A's share : B's share : C's share = B's time*C time : A's time*C's time : A's time * B's time.
