# A alone can do a piece of work in 3 days, while B alone can do the same work in 2 days. If they work together to complete the work, their total wages is fixed Rs.225. Find the share of A.

 A) Rs.90 B) R.s.75 C) Rs.95 D) Rs.65

 A) Rs.90

Description for Correct answer:
A's 1 day's work = $$\Large \frac{1}{3}$$

B's 1 day's work = $$\Large \frac{1}{2}$$

A's share : B's share = $$\Large \frac{1}{3}$$ : $$\Large \frac{1}{2}$$

= $$\Large \frac{2}{6}$$ : $$\Large \frac{3}{6}$$ = 2 : 3

Share of A = $$\Large \frac{2}{5} \times 225$$ = Rs.90
