Answer Key

Work-related Problems

Case 1: Workers have different rates

Work rate × Time to finish the job = 1 job done

Work rate = (1 job done) / (Time to finish the job)

Time of doing the job = (1 job done) / (Work rate)


For example
Albert can finish a job in A days
Bryan can finish the same job in B days
Carlo can undo the job in C days
