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.

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
