Answer :

Given: number of villagers (x) = 50

Number of days to dig a pond (y) = 18


Let New number of villagers (x1) = (x1)


New Number of days to dig = 15


As per given condition if the number of days reduced then number of villagers will increases than the previously given. Hence, it is the question of indirect proportion.


i.e. xy = x1y1


or 50 ×18 = 15 × x1



x1 = 60 days


Hence, 15 villagers will need 60 days.
