# 90 Men Can Complete a Work in 24 Days Working 8 Hours a Day. How Many Men Are Required to Complete the Same Work in 18 Days Working 7 1/2 Hours a Day? - Mathematics

Sum

90 men can complete a work in 24 days working 8 hours a day. How many men are required to complete the same work in 18 days working 7 1/2 hours a day?

#### Solution

In 24 days, working 8 hours a day, work can be completed by = 90 men

In 1 day, working 8 hours a day, work can be completed by = 90 × 24 men

In 18 days, working 8 hours a day, work can be completed by =(90xx24)/18 men

In 18 days, working 1 hour a day, work can be completed by = (90xx24)/18xx8 men

In 18 days, working 7 1/2 i.e. 15/2 hours a day, work can be completed by =(90xx24xx8)/18xx2/15 men

=(90xx24xx8xx2)/(18xx15)=(1xx24xx8xx2)/3 = 128 men
