20 men complete one-third of a work in 20 days. How many more men should be employed to finish the rest of work in 24 more days?

- 15
- 12
- 18
- 25

**Answer: (2) 12**

**Explanation:-**

Let the age of X men more are employed for the rest work.

**Given-**

20 men can complete one-third of work = 20 days

M 1 = 20 , M 2 = (20 + X), D 1 = 20 & D 2 = 25

**Formula-**

**M 1 x D 1 W 1 = M 2 x D 2 x W 2**

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

Then, 20 x 20 x 2/3 = 25 x (20 + X) x 1/3

800 = 500 + 25 X

25 X = 800 – 500

25 X = 300

X = 300/25

X = 12

Hence, the answer is (2) 12.
