1 man do 1/44 job per day 2 woman do 1/44 job per day 3 children do 1/44 job per day

so 1man , 1 woman , 1 child.. 1/44+1/88+1/132 job per day

so 11/264 = 1/t where t is the time taken..

now 264/11 = 24 = t

One Man + One Woman + One Boy =1+(1/2)+ (1/3)=11/6

44/(11/6)=24

24 Days Exactly

How less people can finish same work early? 1 man + 2 women + 3 boys ( takes 44 days) 1 man + 1 women + 1 body ( should take more than 44 days)

if you assume that Efficency factor of women = 1/2 Man Boy = 1/3 Man Total workload is 44x3 = 132 man days

If so then it shoud take (132) / (11/6) = 72 days

let's say 3 boys = 6 kpowers (kpower is something constant), so 1 boy = 2 kpowers; then 2 women = 6 kpowers (because 2 women and 3 boys can do the job in the same amount of time), so 1 woman = 3 kpowers; and 1 man = 6 kpowers.

at the next step 1 man + 1 woman + 1 boy = 6 + 3 + 2 = 11 kpowers.

so if 6 kpowers can do the job in 44 days, 11 kpowers can do it in 44*6/11=24

Ans=42 because 1m and 2w do it in 44 then 1m and 1w and 1b can do it in 3*44=3*? d=(3*44)/3 d=44 days

1man=1/44 2women=1/44...........so 1 women=1/88 3boys=1/44...............so 1 boy=1/(44*3)........1/132 we need 1man+1women+1boy 1/44+1/88+1/132 take lcm of 44,88,132...6+3+2/(264)....11/264..........1/24..

so answer is 24 days

The answer is 22 days, How lets solve it.

1 man can do in 44 days 2 women can do in 44 days 3 boys can do in 44 days

then 1man+1women+1boy can do in =1/(1/44+1/88+1/132) =132/6 =22 days

1 woman = 1/2 or .5 man 1 boy = 1/3 or .3333 man 1 man + 1 woman + 1 boy = 1+ .5 + .3333 = 1.8333 man if 1 man can do in 44 days, 1.8333 man can do in 44/1.8344 = 24 days

24 days exactly. In 1 day one man can do 1/44 of entire work, similarly one woman and one child can do individually 1/88 and 1/132. so together they do 11/264 of entire work in a day. so they will complete entire work i.e 1 whole of work in 264/11 days. i.e 24 by unitary method.

At first convert man & women into boys..
1 men=3 boys, 2 women=3 boys,so 3/2 boys,3 boys=3 boys
work all together =3/2+1+3=3/2+4=11/2(in boys)
take boys alone;according to chain rule,no of workers and days are inversely proportional..
3 boys=44 days
11/2 boys=x days
x=3*44*2/11=24 DAYS
ANS:24 days

U guys r forgetting one imp thing... That is .. OR.
One man OR 2Women OR 3 boys...
It can one man n 2 women=44days
Or 2 women n 3boys = 44days... Or individually ... 24 is not the correct answer.

1M=2W=3B COMPLETES THE WORK IN 44 DAYS
SO 1M+1W+1B COMPLETES IN ?? DAYS CONVERTING ALL INTO WOMAN
2W+1W+2/3W = [6+3+2]/3 = 11/3 W 2W TAKES 44 DAYS SO 11/3W WILL TAKE 44 * 2 * 3 / 11 = 24 DAYS

Explanation:
1 man = 2 women = 3 boys
1 woman = 1/2 man and 1 boy = 1/3 man
So, [1+1/2+1/3]men=[11/6men]
Now, 1 man can do the piece of work in 44 days
11/6men can do it in [44×6/11] = 24 days

1 man can complete 1 work in 44 days, so 1 man can complete 1/44 works in 1 day.
2 women can complete 1 work in 44 days, so 1 women can complete 1/44*2 works in 1 day.
3 boy can complete 1 work in 44 days, so 1 boy can complete 1/44*3 works in 1 day.
According to the question,
1 men+1 women+1 boy complete (1/44+1/88+1/132) works in 1 day.
=> 1/44(1+1/2+1/3)=11/(6*44)=1/24 works in 1 day.
or, 1 work can complete 24 days.
so, 1 men,1 women and 1 boy together can finish same work in 24 days.
ans=24 days.

Let the work to make 44 block in 44 day.
Man can make 1 block each day.
Woman can make 0.5 block each day individually.
Boy make 0.33 block part each day .
1+0.5+0.33=1.83
44/1.83=24

m = 1
w = 1/2
b = 1/3 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 = 44
6/6 + 3/6 + 2/6 = 11/6 11/6 = 44
444/6 = ? 444/6 = 222/3 = 74 The right answer 74 days
