it was calculated that 15 men could complete a piece of work in 30 days. when work was scheduled to commence, it was found necessary to send 5 men to another project. how many days will the work be completed in now?

**Answer:** If 15 men can complete a piece of work in 30 days, then we can find the total amount of work to be done as follows:

**Total work = (Number of men) x (Time taken)**

Total work = 15 x 30

Total work = 450

Now, if 5 men are sent to another project, only 10 men will be available for this project. Let’s call the number of days needed to complete the work with 10 men as “d”.

We know that the amount of work remains the same, so we can set up the following equation:

(10 men) x d = 450

Simplifying this equation, we get:

d = 450/10

d = **45**

Therefore, the work will now be completed in **45 days** with 10 men.
