# Amulya alone does a piece of work in 2 days and Bindu does it in 6 days

Amulya alone does a piece of work in 2 days and Bindu does it in 6 days. In how many days will the two do it together?

(a) 2/3 days

(b) 3/2 days

(c) 5/3 days

(d) 3 days

**Answer: (b) 3/2 days **

**Solution:-**

Amulya alone can do a piece of work = 2 days

Therefore, Amulya can do a piece of work in a day = 1/2

Bindu can do same piece of work = 6 days

Therefore, Bindu can do same work in a day = 1/6

Amulya and Bindu together can do same work in a day = 1/2 + 1/6

= (3 + 1)/6

= 4/6

= 2/3

Then, Amulya and Bindu together can do same work = 3/2 hours.

Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 3/2 hours.
