Given that, Anil alone can do a job in $20$ days, and Sunil alone can do a job in $40$ days.

  • Anil $\rightarrow 20$ days
  • Sunil $\rightarrow 40$ days

LCM of $20$ and $40 \Rightarrow 40\;\text{units}$ (Total work)

  • Anil efficiency  $=\frac{40}{20} \Rightarrow 2$
  • Sunil efficiency $= \frac{40}{40}\Rightarrow 1$

Work done by Anil in $3$ days $ = 2 \times 3 = 6\;\text{units}$

Now, remaining work $ = 40 – 6 = 34\;\text{unit}$

Let the number of days Anil and Sunil done the work together be $x$ days.

 Bimal has done $10\%$ of the work $ = 40 \times \frac{10}{100} = 4\;\text{units}$

Remaining  work done by Anil and Sunil $ = 34-4=30\;\text{units}$

The number of days Anil and Sunil did the work together $ x = \frac{30}{(2+1)} = \frac{30}{3} = 10$ days.

$\therefore$ The total time to complete the work $ = x + 3 = 10 + 3  = 13$ days.

Two circles, each of radius $4$ cm, touch externally. Each of these two circles is touched externally by a third circle. If these three circles have a common tangent, then the radius of the third circle, in cm, is $\sqrt{2}$ $\frac{\pi }{3}$ $\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$ $1$
