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.

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.

how long will ti take 6 men to dig a trench if 3 men can complete this task in 3 days
Weegy: It should only take 3 days, but it actually depends on how the men work. User: if 5 men take 12 day to complete a job at the same rate how long will it tack 6 men ? Weegy: 9.6 DAYS. as each man account for abour 2.4 days. This is arrived at by dividing the number of days by the number of men. (More)

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.
