24 days (24.04372 days exactly)

Exactly 24 days... 
 
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

we have m*44=x, 2w*44=x, 3b*44=x and therefore

m*44= n*m + n*(m/2) + n*(m/3) which gives

n= 44* (6/11) = 24 days

In the problem,it is given that 1 man=2 women=3 boys

now 1women=1/2 man

& 1 boy=1/3 man,now 1 man can do the work in 44 days

                         then (1+1/2+1/3)men can do the work in X days(indirect propotion)

therefore 11/6:1::44:X  ==> X=24,hence 24 days

its exactly 22days

1 men can complete work in 1/44

1 women can complete it in 1/88

1 boy can complete it in 1/132

when they work together i.e

1/44+1/88+1/132=12/264

therefore they can complete it in 22 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

  Was this answer useful?  Yes

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

24 days:

1) 1/((1/44) + (1/88)+(1/132)) = 24

2) 3+ 3/2 + 1 =11/2 and 132/5.5 = 24

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.

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 = ?
