# Thread: Unitary Method - A Problem...

1. ## Unitary Method - A Problem...

Hi all,

Firstly, I appreciate the efforts taken to help me resolve my previous post on this forum. You guys are beyond awesome!

I was studying "Unitary Method" today, and conceptually, it can be used to solve wide variety of problems.
I'm having some difficulties in solving some specific applications of unitary method..

For example,
If 5 persons weave 180 sweaters in 12 days, how many sweaters would 6 persons weave in 15 days?

Can anyone help me out with these?

Sincerely,
Abhijit.

5 people--- 180 sweaters--- 12 days.

hence,
1 person--- 180/5 sweaters--- 12 days.

hence,
1 person--- 180/(5*12) sweaters--- 1 day.

can you do it now?
