A alone and B alone can do a work in respectively 18 and 8 days more than both working together. Find the number of days required if both work together. (A) 12 (B) 8 (C) 16 (D) 36

Answer: (A)

Explanation: Let the time required to complete the work by A and B together = n days => Time required by A alone = n + 18 days => Time required by B alone = n + 8 days Therefore, n2 = 18 x 8 = 144 => n = 12 Hence, A and B require 12 days to complete the work if they work together.
