Q:

# 50 men can build a tank in 40days, but though they begin the work together, 5 men quit every ten days. The time needed to build the tank is ?

 A) 50 days B) 48 days C) 47.5 days D) 49 days

Explanation:

50 men can build a tank in 40 days

Assume 1 man does 1 unit of work in 1 day

Then the total work is 50×40 = 2000 units

50 men work in the first 10 days and completes 50×10 = 500 units of work

45 men work in the next 10 days and completes 45×10 = 450 units of work

40 men work in the next 10 days and completes 40×10 = 400 units of work

35 men work in the next 10 days and completes 35×10 = 350 units of work

So far 500 + 450 + 400 + 350 = 1700 units of work is completed and

Remaining work is 2000 - 1700 = 300 units

30 men work in the next 10 days. In each day, they does 30 units of work.

Therefore, additional days required = 300/30 =10

Thus, total 10+10+10+10+10 = 50 days required.
