Micheal and Adam can do together a piece of work in 20 days. After they have worked together for 12 days Micheal stops and Adam completes the remaining work in 10 days. In how many days Micheal complete the work separately.
A. 80 days
B. 100 days
C. 120 days
D. 110 days
E. 90 days
Let the total work be 60 ( LCM of 20,12 & 10 )
Efficiency of Micheal and Adam is \(\frac{60}{20} = 3\)
Quote:
After they have worked together for 12 days.....
Unit of work completed is 12*3 => 36 units
Units of work left is 60 - 36 => 24 units
Quote:
Adam completes the remaining work in 10 days
So, Adam completes 24 units in 10 days..
Efficiency of Adam = 24/10 => \(\frac{12}{5}\) => \(2.4\)
Efficiency of Micheal and Adam is = 3
Efficiency of Adam is = 2.40
So, Efficiency of Micheal is = 0.60
Thus the time required for Micheal to complete the work is = \(\frac{60}{0.60}\) => 100
Hence correct answer is (B) 100
