## Solution

Babla alone can do work in 10 days In 1 day , Babla can do 1/10 of work Ashu alone can do work in 15 days In 1 day , Ashu can do 1/15 of work Ratio of Babla & Ashu work for 1 day = (1/10)/(1/15) = 15/10 = 3/2 Total wage of their work = 5000 As Babla & Ashu ratio = 3/2 , so Babla work is 3x & Ashu work is 2x. 3x + 2x =5000 5x=5000 x=1000Babla=3x = 3*1000 = 3000
