Pradeep receives an export order for garments. He has 30 machines to complete the order in 60 days. How many machines would be required to complete the job in 40 days?

Given

Praddep has 30 machines to complete the order in 60 days.

Find out

How many machines would be required to complete the job in 40 days

Solution

As per the given data

The number of machines is inversely proportion to the number of days:

The job has to be completed in 1 day:

60 days = 30 machines

1 day = 60 x 30 = 1800 machines

To find the job has to be completed in 40 days:

1 day = 1800 machines

40 days = 1800 ÷ 40 = 45 machines

Answer

45 machines are needed to complete the job in 40 days.
