The current erection cost of a structure is Rs. 13,200. If the labour wages per day increase by
1/5 of the current wages and the working hours decrease by 1/24 of the current period, then
the new cost of erection in Rs. is

**A. ** 16,500

**B. ** 15,180

**C. ** 11,000

**D. ** 10,120

**Answer : ****Option B**

**Explaination / Solution: **

Let ‘W’ be the labour wages, and ‘T’ be the working hours.

Let ‘W’ be the labour wages, and ‘T’ be the working hours.

Now, total cost is a function of W × T

Increase in wages = 20%

∴ Revised wages = 1.2 W

Decrease in labour time = (100/24)%

∴ Re vised time = (1-(1/24))T = (23/24)T

Re vised Total cost = 1.2 × (23/24)WT = 1.15WT

= 1.15 × 13200 = 15180
