1/20.

Solution

(A+B)'s 1 day work = 1/72
(B+C)'s 1 day work = 1/120
(A+C)'s 1 day work = 1/90

On adding 2(A+B+C)'s 1 day work = 1/72 + 1/120 + 1/90 = 1/30

(A+B+C)'s 1 day work = 1/( 2 x 30)= 1/60

A,B and C together can complete work in 60 days.

Work finished by them in 3 days = 3 x 1/60 = 1/20
