TIME AND WORK
Then the general formula in the relationship of M1 D1 W2 = M2 D2 W1
- More men less days and conversely more days less men.
- More men more work and conversely more work men.
- More days more work and conversely more work days.
WORK & WAGES
Wages are distributed in proportion to the work done and in indirect (or inverse) proportion to the time taken by the individual.
There are two methods: – Eg. A can do a work in 6days and B can do the same work in 5 days. The contract for the work is Rs. 220. How much shall B get If both of them work together.
Methods I : –
PIPES AND CISTERNS
Pipes & Cisterns: These problems are almost the same as those of Time and work problems. Thus, if a pipe fills a tank in 6 hrs, then the pipe fills 1/6th of the tank in hour.
There is one difference that pipes & cisterns problems is that there are outlets as well as inlets. Thus, there are agents (the outlets) which perform negative work too. The rest of the process is almost similar.
A pipe connected with a tank (or a cistern or a reservoir) is called an inlet, if it fills it.
A pipe connected with a tank is called an outlet, if it empties it.
