# How many Days are Needed to Complete the Work?

12 men can do a piece of work in 24 days, How many days are needed to complete the work if 8 men do this work?

- 28
- 36
- 48
- 52

**Answer: (2) 36 days**

**Explanation:-**

12 men can do a piece of work = 24 days

12 men can do work in a day = 1/24

1 men can do work in a day = /12 x 24

Then, 8 men can do the same work in a day = 8/12 x 24

= 1/36

Therefore, 8 men can do the same work = 36 days

Hence, the answer is (2) 36 days.
