If 15 men can complete a work in 16 days

Time Work

If 15 men can complete a work in 16 days. If 24 men are employed, then the time required to complete that work will be

  1. 7 days
  2. 8 days
  3. 10 days
  4. 12 days

Answer

We can measure the work in terms of man days. Since the same work is being done, number of man days should be constant. So,

Work done = Man-days = 15 × 16 = 24 × D, where D is the number of days.

⇨ D = (15 × 16) / 24 = 10 days

The correct option is C.
