...18, is evidently the other extreme, or the value of x. 1 96. 3. If 4 men can do a piece of work hi **6 days, in how many days can 8 men do it ? By analyzing...example, we find that 4 men 6 days=:l man 24 days, and** I man 24 days=8 men 3 days. 8 then is the answer. Moreover it is obvious, that if 4 men can do a piece... | |
