##### Time and Work

The unitary method is a method or technique in an algebra for solving a class of problems in variation.Time and work are also related to the unitary method. Here, we calculate the part of a work in unit time and also calculate the time taken to do a work.

• Work from Days:
If A can do a piece of work in n days, then A's 1 day's work =$\frac{1}{n}$

• Days from Work:
If A's 1 day's work = $\frac{1}{n}$,then A can finish the work in n days.

• Ratio:
If A is thrice as good workman as B, then:
The ratio of work done by A and B = 3: 1.
The ratio of times taken by A and B to finish a work = 1: 3.

• No. of days = total work / work done in 1 day

• Relationship between Men and Work
More men —can do → More work
Less men —can do →Less work

• Relationship between Work and Time
More work —takes →More Time
Less work —takes →Less Time

• Relationship between Men and Time
More men —can do in →Less Time
Less men —can do in →More Time ##### Things to remember
• A complete work is considered as 1.
• Work done by A in unit time added to the work done by B in unit time, gives the time work done by A and B together in unit time.
• The work done by A in unit time is subtracted from the work done by A and B together works in unit time gives the work done by B in unit time.
• Total work is done in different steps is always 1.
• It includes every relationship which established among the people.
• There can be more than one community in a society. Community smaller than society.
• It is a network of social relationships which cannot see or touched.
• common interests and common objectives are not necessary for society.

Solution:

Ram can do 1 work in 6 days
Ram can do $\frac{1}{6}$ work in 1 day

B can do$\frac{1}{y}$ work in 1 day.
B can do$\frac{9}{y}$ work in 9 days.
B can do$\frac{6}{y}$ work in 6 days.

From first condition,
$\frac{2}{x} + \frac{9}{y} = 1 \: \: ......... (1)$

From Second condition,
$\frac{3}{x} + \frac{6}{y}= 1 \: \: \: ........(2)$

Eqn (1) is multiply by 3 andEqn (2) is multiply by 2 and subtract.

\begin{array}{rrrr} \frac{6}{x} &+ \frac {27}{y} &= 3\\ \frac{6}{x} &+ \frac {12}{y} &= 2\\ -&-&-\\ \hline\\ &\frac{15}{y}&=&1\\\end{array}

\begin{align*} y&= 15\\ \end{align*}

Putting the value of y in equation (1)

\begin{align*}\frac{2}{x} + \frac {9}{y} &= 1\\ or, \frac{2}{x} + \frac{9}{15} &= 1\\ or, \frac{2}{x}&= 1 - \frac{9}{15}\\ or, \frac{2}{x} &= \frac{15 - 9}{15} \\ or, \frac{2}{x}&= \frac{6}{15}\\ or, \frac{2}{x}&= \frac{2}{5}\\ \frac{2 \times 5}{2} &= x \\ \therefore x &= 5\end{align*}

A complete work in 5 days.
B complete work in 15 days.

Solution:

Let, a number of men employed in the beginning = x

 Men Days Work x 20 $\frac{1}{2}$ x + 60 (30 - 20)= 10 $\frac{1}{2}$

The relation between men and work are in direct variation, men and days are in indirect variation.

\begin{align*} \frac{x}{x + 60} &= \frac{10}{20} \times \frac{\frac{1}{2}}{\frac{1}{2}}\\or, \frac{x}{x + 60} &= \frac{1}{2}\\ or, 2x &= x + 60\\or, 2x - x &= 60 \\ \therefore x &= 60 \end{align*}

$\therefore$ the no. of men employed at first = 60.Ans.

Solution:

Remaining days = 60 - 40 = 20 days
Remaining work $= 1 - \frac{1}{2} =\frac{1}{2} \: work$

 Men Days Work 60 40 $\frac{1}{2}$ 60 + x 20 $\frac{1}{2}$

Men & work are in direct variation and men and days are in indirect variation.

\begin{align*}\frac{x + 60}{60} &= \frac{40}{20} \times \frac{\frac{1}{2}}{\frac{1}{2}} \\ or, \frac{x + 60}{60} &= 2 \\ or, x + 60 &= 120\\ or, x &= 120 - 60 &= 60 \end{align*}

$\therefore$ The no. of added people= 60 Ans.

Solution:

Let, the no. of labour of first be 'x'
Remaining days = 90 - 60 = 30 days
Remaining work = $1 - \frac {3}{5} = \frac{5 - 3}{5} = \frac{2}{5}$ work

 Men Days Work x 60 $\frac{3}{5}$ x + 15 30 $\frac{2}{5}$

Men and work are in direct proportion and men and days are in indirect proportion.

\begin{align*} \frac{x }{x + 15} &= \frac{30}{60} \times \frac{3}{5} \times \frac{5}{2}\\ or, \frac{x}{x + 15} &= \frac{3}{4} \\ or, 4x &= 3x + 45\\ or, 4x - 3x &= 45\\ \therefore x &= 45 \end{align*}

$\therefore$ The number of labours at first = 45Ans.

Solution:

Let, 4 men are added after x days.

 Men Days 20 x 20 + 4 =20 24 - 3 - x =21 - x

20 men can do 1 work in 24 days.

20 men can do $\frac{1}{24}$ work in 1 day.

20 men can do $\frac{x}{24}$ work in x days.

20 men can do $\frac{1}{24}$ work in 1 day.
1 men can do$\frac{1}{20 \times 24}$ work in 1 day.

24 men can do$\frac{1}{20} \times (21 - x)$ work in (21 - x ) days.

From above,

\begin{align*} \frac{x}{24} + \frac{21 - x}{20} &= 1 \\ or, \frac{5x + 126 - 6x}{120} &= 1\\ or, 126 - x &= 120\\ or, x &= 126 - 120 \\ \therefore x &= 6 \: days \end{align*}

$\therefore$ After 6 days men were added.Ans.

C can empty$\frac{1}{16}$ tank in 1 minute.

Three taps fills$\frac{1}{8} + \frac{1}{12} - \frac{1}{16}$tank in 1 minute.

Three taps fills$\frac{6 + 4 - 3}{48}$ tank$= \frac{7}{48}$ tank in 1 minute.

Three tap fill 1 tank in $\frac{48}{7}$ $=6 \frac{6}{7}$ minutesAns.

Solution:

20 men can do 1 work in 24 days.
20 men can do $\frac{1}{24}$ work in 1 day.
2o men can do$\frac{6}{24} = \frac{1}{4}$ work in 6 days.

Remaining work =$1 - \frac{1}{4} = \frac{4 -1}{4} = \frac{3}{4}$ work.

Remaining days after added men = 21 - 6 = 15 days

In 24 days 1 work done by 20 men.
In 1 day 1 work done $20 \times 24$ men.

In 15 day 1 work done by$\frac{20 \times 24}{15}$ men.

In 15 day $\frac{3}{4}$ work done by$\frac{20 \times 24}{15} \times \frac{3}{4}$ men $= 24 \: men$

$\therefore$ Added men = 24 - 20 = 4 men
