Some men can do a piece of work in 60 days. If 8 more men join them the work is finished 10 days before the stipulated time. How many men were there in the beginning?



[ A ]    35
[ B ]    40 right
[ C ]    48
[ D ]    52
Answer : Option B
Explanation :
Let the number of men be x.

X men do the work in 60 days.

1 man does the work in 60 X xdays.

So, (x+8) men do the work in 50days.

1 man does the work in 50(x+8) days

Now,60x = 50(x+8)

Or , 60x-50x = 400

Or, x=40.
