Time and Work formula shortcuts Tricks Aptitude Question

Shortcut tricks are used here to solve the numerical
problems on time and work. This shortcut makes the
preparation of aptitude questions for exams like UPSC,
SSC, CAT, MAT, GMAT, GRE, MBA competitive exams
and all bank exams such as IBPS, SBI easier.

First, we need to know about the time and work basic

concepts, then only we can get into solving the problems.
The next thing is to know the time and work formulas, then
it is easier to learn the difficult problems.

Time and work important formulas

Time and work problems formulae are given below. In the
formula we have explained with men and women. For
example we have taken A and B as working men or
women.

Time and work problems are frequently asked in

quantitative aptitude test in all exams. There are 9 rules to
solve the questions faster by short cut methods and tricks.
M is person, D is days and W is work.
T is time and E is efficiency.
Rule 1: Universal Rule.
M1D1W2 = M2D2W1
M1D1T1W2 = M2D2T2W1 (When time is given )

M1D1T1E1W2 = M2D2T2E2W1 (When efficiency is

Rule 2 : If A can do a piece of work in n days.
In one day work done by A is 1/n.
Rule 3: A can do a work in D1 days, B can do
same work in D2 days. A and B together do
the same work in how many days ?
Formula= (D1*D2)/(D1+D2)
Rule 4: If A is twice as good as B, then A will
take 1/2 time taken by B to complete a work.
B alone can finish in 2x days ( x is work done by A )
Rule 5: If A is thrice as good a as B, then A
will take 1/3rd of the time taken by B to
complete a work.
B alone can finish in 3x days
Rule 6: If A and B together can do a piece of
work in x days.

B and C together takes y days and C and A together

takes in z days, then same work can be done by A, B and
C alone is ?
Remaining rules and formula are given in pdf notes
(tutorial).

How to solve time and work problems

examples
Time and work examples are given here to practice
quantitative aptitude question. An Important problem with
a solution for an example is derived and given.

We hope that you now understood the concept of time and

work. Let us start with the different type of time and work
problems. Practice these questions with answers to get
through on the concepts.

Time and work aptitude questions with

solutions
Time and work solved examples are solved here in an
easier way. Check out the set of four different important
problems and tricks to solve those problems.

Profit and Loss Formulas

Basic formulas for profit and Loss is given below.
S.P- Selling Price;C.P-Cost Price
Profit =S.P C.P ; Loss= C.P S.P.
Gain%= (Gain *100 / C.P); Loss%=(Loss*100 / S.P)

S.P= (100 + Gain%) / 100 * (C.P); S.P=(100 Loss%) /

100 * (C.P)
C.P=(100/(100 + gain%)* (S.P)); C.P=(100/(100 Loss%)
* (S.P))

How to solve Profit and Loss problems

Example: If the price of the 12 tables is
equal to the selling price of 16 tables , then
the percent of loss is?
The Cost price of 1 table is Rs. 1
The same for 16 tables = 16
Selling price of 16 table = 12; Loss = C.P S.P
Loss = 16 12 =4
Loss%=(Loss*100 / S.P); Loss% = (4 / 16 ) * 100 = 25%

Here the important formulas in problem of ages maths are

given,
Consider the letter y to represent the age of a person.
If the current age is, y then n times the age =
ny.
If the current age is y, then age n years later =
y + n.
If the current age is y, then age n years ago =
y n.
The ages in a ratio a : b will be ay and by.
If current age is y, then 1 / n of the age is y / n.

easily
Average example problems are explained step by
step.

Example: A fruit man has a sale of Rs. 6000, Rs.

5000, Rs.4000, Rs. 2000 for 4 consecutive months.
How much should he have in the fifth month so

+ 4000 + 2000 )
= RS. 17000
Required sale: Rs. [(3600 * 5) 17000]
= Rs. (18000 17000)
= Rs. 1000
In this example, the amount of four sale is given.
