# If 30 men can build a wall 56 meters long in 5 days, what length of a similar wall can be built by 40 men in 3 days ?

If 30 men can build a wall 56 meters long in 5 days, what length of a similar wall can be built by 40 men in 3 days ?

A. 36.5 m

B. 44.8 m

C. 62.3 m

D. 92 m

**Answer : **B. 44.8 m

## Explanation:

Let the required length be x meters

More men, More length built (Direct proportion)

Less days, Less length built (Direct Proportion)

(30 x 5 x X) = (40 x 3 x 56)

=> x = 44.8

Hence, the required length is 44.8 m.
