## It takes 7 shipping clerks 15 days to prepare the warehouse for a new shipment. How many days would it take if only 3 shipping clerks, who worked at the same rate, had to do the job? could anyone help me solve this problem i roughly know the answer is more then 30 days but whats the formula thanks

Work out the number of "man-days" for the task = 7*15 = 105 man days... More
If they are non-union & making minimum wage it will only take them 9 days.

7 workers 15 days 3 workers more days you got 7 * 15 = 105 (worker x day ratio) So it'll take 105 / 3 = 35 days to complete with 3 workers

The work required to prepare the warehouse = 7 * 15 clerk/days = 105. Therefore if you have only 3 shipping clerks it will take them 105/3 = 35 days.

7/3 * 15 7/3=2.33 so 7 is 2.33 times more than 3. Therefore you need 2.33 times more days to do the work so 2.33 X 15= 35 days

7 clerks take......15 days 1 clerk will take ...105 days 3 clerks will take...105/3=35 days

They're union, working class. That's how we know that the work rate is rigid. :o)

First you find out how much time would a single shipping clerk take. That means you have to multiply 15 by 7 because you multiplied the 7 clerks by 7. You get 105 days. Now to get the rate of the 3 clerks you divide the 105 by 3 (to go from single clerk to 3) and you get 35. That means that 3 clerks take 35 days to... More

If C = number of clerks and N = days then C*N = number of clerk days required to complete the job... More

7 clerks = 15 days 1 clerk = 7 x 15 = 105 days 3 clerks = 105 divided by 3 = 35 days
