# Find the number of men?

A certain number of men can do a piece of work in 40 days. If there had been 8 men more. It could have been finished in 10 days less. Find the number of men?

- 32 men
- 28 men
- 24 men
- 34 men

**Answer: (3) 24 men **

**Explanation:-**

Let the number of men be X

Then, 1 work done = X × 40

Then, X × 40 = (X + 8 ) (40 – 10)

40 X = 30 X + 240

10 X = 240

Therefore, X = 240/10 = 24 men.

Hence, the correct answer is option (3) 24 men.
