# CAT 2019 Quant Question with Solution 59

Question:
John gets Rs 57 per hour of regular work and Rs 114 per hour of overtime work. He works altogether 172 hours and his income from overtime hours is 15% of his income from regular hours. Then, for how many hours did he work overtime?

Let the number of hours for regular and overtime work be x and y respectively.

We have two equations:

$x\text{ }+\text{ }y\text{ }=172...(1)$

$\text{114}y\text{ }=\frac{15}{100}\times 57x...(2)$

On solving both the equations, we get x = 160 and y 12.

Hence, his overtime work =12 hours
