  3. Q10
    6 boys or 4 men mean 6 boy=4 men
    then 3 boy= 2 men
    1 men=3/2 boy
    we have to find work done by
    3 b and 10 m means
    3b+10m=3b+10(3/2 b)=18b
    6 boys or 4 men can complete a piece of work in 24 days
    which means 6 boys or 4 men can complete a piece of work= 1/24 days
    so 6 boys can also omplete a piece of work = 1/24 days
    so 1 boy can omplete a piece of work = 1/(24*6) days
    18 boys can omplete a piece of work = 1*18/(24*6) days=1/8 days
    so 18 boys can omplete a piece of work in 8 days
