$\frac{Man}{Boy}=\frac{n{{b}_{2}}-{{b}_{1}}}{{{a}_{1}}-n{{a}_{2}}}$

Trick - 2
If ${{x}_{1}}$ men of ${{y}_{1}}$ women can reap a field in 'D' days, then ${{x}_{2}}$ men and ${{y}_{2}}$ women take to reap it
$\left[ \frac{D\left( {{x}_{1}}{{y}_{1}} \right)}{{{x}_{2}}{{y}_{1}}+{{x}_{1}}{{y}_{2}}} \right]days$
Trick - 3
If A and B can do a work in x and y days respectively, and B leaves the work after doing for 'a' days, then A does the remaining work in
$\left[ \frac{\left( y-a \right)x}{y} \right]days$
Trick - 4
A, B and C together can do a work in x days , A alone can do the work in 'a' days and B alone can do the same work in 'b' days, then C will do the same  work in
$\left[ \frac{xab}{ab-x(a+b)} \right]days$
Trick - 5
A and B can do a piece of work in x and y days respectively, and both of them starts the work together. If B leaves the work 'a' days before the completion of work, then the total time, in which the whole work is completed
$=\left[ \frac{\left( y+a \right)x}{x+y} \right]days$
Trick - 6
A can do a work in x days and B can do the same work in y days. If they work together for 'd' days and A goes away, then the number of days in which B finishes they work is given by
$y-\left( 1+\frac{y}{x} \right)d$  days
