# A can do a piece of work in 9 days and B can do the same work in 15 days. If they work together, in what ratio A and B will receive their wages?

 A) 3 : 5 B) 5 : 3 C) 2 : 5 D) 5 : 2

 B) 5 : 3

Description for Correct answer:
A's 1 day's work = $$\Large \frac{1}{9}$$

B's 1 day's work = $$\Large \frac{1}{15}$$

A's share : B's share = $$\Large \frac{1}{9}$$ : $$\Large \frac{1}{15}$$

= $$\Large \frac{5}{45}$$ $$\Large \frac{3}{45}$$ = 5 : 3
