Solution:

If 3 men can complete the task in 3 days, it means that the rate of work is 3 man-days per day (3 men * 3 days = 9 man-days of work in total).

Now, if 6 men are working together, their combined rate of work will be 6 times that of one man working alone.

So, it will take 9 man-days / 6 men = 1.5 days for 6 men to dig the trench.

If 3 men can complete the task in 3 days, it means that the rate of work is 3 man-days per day (3 men * 3 days = 9 man-days of work in total).

Now, if 6 men are working together, their combined rate of work will be 6 times that of one man working alone.

So, it will take 9 man-days / 6 men = 1.5 days for 6 men to dig the trench.

Solution:

5 men * 12 days = 60 man-days to complete the job.

6 men * x days = 60 man-days

x = 60 man-days / 6 men

x = 10 days

So, it will take 6 men 10 days to complete the same job at the same rate.

5 men * 12 days = 60 man-days to complete the job.

6 men * x days = 60 man-days

x = 60 man-days / 6 men

x = 10 days

So, it will take 6 men 10 days to complete the same job at the same rate.

Solution:

Initially, there were 35 men, and the food was meant to last for 7 days. So, the total man-days of food were 35 men * 7 days = 245 man-days.

35 men * 7 days = 45 men * x days

x = (35 men * 7 days) / 45 men

x = (245 man-days) / 45 men

x 5.44 days

So, with the increased group of 45 men, the food will last for approximately 5.44 days.
