Question

11 men can dig $$6\dfrac{3}{4}$$ metre long trench in one day. How many men should be employed for digging 27 metre long trench of the same type in one day?

Solution

Let $$x$$ be the number of men required to dig a trench of $$27$$ meter.Number of men$$11$$ $$x$$ Length ( in m ) $$6\dfrac{3}{4}=\dfrac{27}{4}$$$$27$$Since, the length of the trench and the number of men are in direct variation, we have:$$\Rightarrow$$  $$\dfrac{11}{x}=\dfrac{27/4}{27}$$$$\Rightarrow$$  $$11\times 27=x\times \dfrac{27}{4}$$$$\Rightarrow$$  $$x=\dfrac{11\times 27\times 4}{27}$$$$\Rightarrow$$  $$x=44$$$$\therefore$$  $$44$$ men will be required to dig a trench of $$27$$ meter. Mathematics
