A painting job can be completed by 7 painters in 50 days. If 21 more painters join the team 10 days
after starting work on the job, how many more days are required to complete the job?
A. 6 days
B. 8 days
C. 10 days
D. 12 days
E. 14 days
The correct answer is option [C]
Total effort required by 7 painters for 50 days = 7 x 50 = 350 man-days.
Initial effort by 7 painters for 10 days = 7 x 10 = 70 man-days.
Job still requires 350 – 70 = 280 man-days, and there are 28 painters available to do it.
Additional effort required by 28 painters for 280 man-days = 280 / 28 = 10 days.
Thus, 10 more days are required to complete the painting job.
