Explanation: Here, it is very clear that Men and Days are inversely proportional. So, M = 1/d Let us consider that 7 men will complete the same work in X days. So, 8 : 14 :: 7 : x Now, (Men1 x days1)/work = (Men2 x days2)/work Since, they are doing the same amount of work 8 x 14 = 7x x = (8 x 14)/7 x = 8 x 2 x = 16 days 1 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Share on LinkedIn Answer this question & earn 50 pointsSign In with FacebookSign In with GoogleSign In with Twitteror use Username or email* Password* Captcha* Remember Me!

If 8 men can do a piece of work in 14 days, then 7 men can do the same piece of work in

16 days.## Explanation:

Here, it is very clear that Men and Days are inversely proportional. So, M = 1/d

Let us consider that 7 men will complete the same work in X days.

So, 8 : 14 :: 7 : x

Now,

(Men1 x days1)/work = (Men2 x days2)/work

8 x 14 = 7x

x = (8 x 14)/7

x = 8 x 2

x = 16 days
