6. 8.103. 4.?
menwork and womenwork daysmenwork and womenwork days
Find the ratio of men and women i.e. 6/3 and 8/4, if these two ratios are equalThen multiply the time by the same ratio and we will get the answerElse (if the two ratios are not equal) then answer
will always be “can’t bedetermined”
If 4 men or 6 women can finish a job in 10 days. How many days will 5 men and9 women will take to finish the same job?Hint: Here work of 4 men is equal to work of 6 women, i.e.
