##### How much should Baba be paid ?

Baba alone can do a piece of work in 10 days. Anshu alone can do it in 15 days. If the total wages for the work is Rs. 50. How much should Baba be paid if they work together for the entire duration of the work?

Options:

Rs. 30

Rs. 20

Rs. 50

Rs. 40

None of these

30

Baba capacity= 1/10th work/day

Anshu capacity= 1/15th work/day

Together they complete the work in 1/10+1/15 = 5/30 = 1/6th of work in 1 day.

That means they complete the work in 6 days.

Now baba's capacity is 1/10th work/day. So 50*1/10 = 5/- per day. He works for 6 total days, so 6*5 = 30/-
