Ratio and proportion topic throws us some really beautiful and hard questions. Let us discuss a few questions.

If 30 men working 7 hours a day can make 12 tables in 18 days, how many days will 45 women working 9 hours a day take to make 32 chairs? Given, 4 men can make 3 tables in the same time as 3 women can make 4 chairs.

a. 12 days

b. 14 days

c. 28 days

d. 21 days
