    If a woman does one unit of work per day, a man can do 8/5 = 1.6 units of work in a day. The task in question therefore requires 10 * ( 3 * 1.6 + 5 * 1) = 98 units of work in total. If only women will be doing the work, and you want it done in 14 days, it takes 98 / 14 = 7 women.

    Answer is 7
    3 men + 5 women=3*(8/5)+5 women
    =49/5 woman
    Now,


    49/5 women can finish job in 10 days
    ...... women can finishe it in 14 days

    Num of women req will be (10/14)*(49/5)=7

    if total work is 40 units then 1man can do 8 units and 1woman can do 5units.

    3 man n 5 woman can do 3*8 + 5*5 = 49 units of work per 10 days.


    units days
    49 10 x=49*10/14=35 units
    x 14

    a single woman can do 5 units of work.
    Therefore, 35 units of work can do by 7 woman.

    here the no of men are constant.........so if 5 women are required for 10days.........then ? for 14 days
    5 10
    ? 14
    so.........5*14=10*x
    so x=7
