While 4 men can do it in 10 days. How many days can 3 men and 3 women take to finish the same work? A) 8 days B) 10 days C) 12 days D) 14 days E) 18 days We can solve this question using some common sense In fact, we don't even need the information from the 2nd sentence (4 men can do it in 10 days. ) GIVEN: 2 men and 3 women can finish a piece of work in 10 days. How many days can 3 men and 3 women take to finish the same work? This new work crew has the same number of women as in the given information, AND it has 1 extra man Since one extra man has joined the work crew, the new crew will finish the job in LESS THAN 10 days . Only one answer choice is LESS THAN 10 days Answer: A Cheers, Brent _________________ Brent Hanneson â€“ Creator of GMATPrepNow.com Use our video course along with Sign up for our free Question of the Day emails And check out all of our free resources GMAT Prep Now's comprehensive video course can be used in conjunction with Beat The GMATâ€™s FREE 60-Day Study Guide and reach your target score in 2 months! • Free Veritas GMAT Class Experience Lesson 1 Live Free Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • 5 Day FREE Trial Study Smarter, Not Harder Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • Free Practice Test & Review How would you score if you took the GMAT Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • 5-Day Free Trial 5-day free, full-access trial TTP Quant Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • Award-winning private GMAT tutoring Register now and save up to$200
