    A certain number of men can do a work in 60 days. If then were eight more men, it could be completed in 10 days less. How many men were there in the beginning?

    A)  70                               

    B)  55

    C)  45                               

    D)  40

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    Let the number of men in the beginning = x Then,    \[\frac{x+8}{x}=\frac{60}{50}\] \[\Rightarrow \]   \[\frac{x+8}{x}=\frac{6}{5}\] \[\Rightarrow \]   \[6x=5x+40\] \[\Rightarrow \] \[x=40\]
