Time & Work Sums

Some short tricks are given below to remember to solve the problems of Time & work with in a minute.
a) If A can do a work in X days and B can do the same work in Y days then Both can do the same work together in \frac{x*y}{x+y}.
b) If A and B together can do a work in x days and A alone can do the same work in y days then B alone can do the same work in \frac{x*y}{x-y}.
c)A can do a work in x days, B and C can do the same work in y and Z days respectively. Then A, B and C working together can do the work in \frac{xyz}{xy+yz+xz}.
d) A and B together can do a work in x days, B and C in y days and C and A in Z days then working together they can \frac{2xyz}{xy+yz+xz}.
e) A can do a work in x days B is y% more efficient then A. B can do the same work in \frac{100}{100+y}.*x
f) A can do a work in x days and B can do in y days. both start the work working together. A left the work after t days then time taken to complete the work in \frac{(x-t) * y}{x}.
g) A can do a work in x days, B in y days and C in Z days then ratio of their working efficiency is yz : xz: xy.
