# How Long will 6 Men and 5 Women take to Finish the Work? If

3 men or 5 women can do a work in 12 days. How long will 6 men and 5 women take to finish the work?

- 4 days
- 10 days
- 15 days
- 20 days

**Answer: (1) 4 days**

**Explanation:-**

**Given-**

3 men or 5 women can do a work = 12 day

5 women = 3 men

Therefore, 1 women = 3/5 men

M 1 = 3 men . D 1 = 12, M 2 = 6 men & D 2 = ?

**Formula-**

**M 1 D 1 = M 2 D 2**

**Where, M = number of men & D number of days.**

Then, 3 x 12 = D 2 x (6 + 5 x 3 / 5)

36 = D 2 x 9

D 2 = 36 /9

D 2 = 4 days

Hence, the answer is (1) 4 days.
