# if three persons can weave 168 shawls in 14 days ,how many shawls will be woven by 8 persons in 5 days.

Since, 3 persons in 14 days can weave 168 shawls.
Then, 3 persons in 1 day can weave $\frac{168}{14}$ shawls.
So, 1 person in 1 day can weave i.e. 4 shawls.
Then, 8 persons in 1 day can weave $8×4$ i.e. 32 shawls
So, 8 persons in 5 days can weave $32×5$ i.e 160 shawls.

Therefore, there will be 160 shawls woven by 8 persons in 5 days.

• 8

let the no. of shawls be x=

No.of persons=3 , 8

No.of shawls=168 , x

It is case of direct variation= 3*x=168*8

= x=168*8/3

=448 shawls
