| Newton alone takes 16 days more than Newton and Naveen together take to finish a work. Naveen alone takes 9 days more than Newton and Naveen together take to finish a work. In how many days Naveen alone will finish the work ?

A. 12

B. 21

C. 19

D. 17

### Right Answer is: B

#### SOLUTION

Let Newton and Naveen together will finish the work in x days………(1)

Number of days taken by Newton alone to finish the work =x+16 …………….(2)

Number of days taken by Naveen alone to finish the work = x+9…………………(3)

From (2) and (3)

Number of days taken by Newton and Naveen together to finish the work = ………..(4)

From (1) and (4)

⇒

⇒

⇒

Naveen alone will finish the work in 12 + 9 = 21 days .
