# In How much will They take to Complete the Work? If

Dinesh and Ramesh can independently complete a piece of work in 80 and 120 minutes respectively. If they work together, how much time will they take to complete the work?

- 24 minutes
- 100 minutes
- 48 minutes
- 200 minutes

**Answer: (1) 24 minutes**

**Explanation:-**

DInesh can complete a piece of work = 80 minutes

Dinesh can work in a minute = 1/80

Ramesh can complete work = 120 minutes

Ramesh can work in a minute = 1/120

They together can work in a minute = 1/80 + 1/120

= (3 + 2)/120

= 5/120

= 1/24

Then, they can complete the work = 24 minutes.

Hence, the answer is (1) 24 minutes.
