Ram decided to plough a farmland in 50 days. He employed 50 men in the beginning and 50 more after 35 days and completed the construction in stipulated time. If he had not employed the additional men, how many days behind schedule would it have been finished?
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option C
Given that, 50 men employed for 35 days and 50 more men employed for 15 days so that the work could be finished in 50 days.
Thus, the total work=50*35+(50+50)15=3250
Suppose, it takes x days to the finish the whole work, if additional men were not employed.
So, we have an equation here.
Therefore, it takes 15 days more than stipulated time.
