    Algebra Word Problem Help?

    If 40 men working on a project can complete the job in 100 hours, how many men would be required to complete the job in 80 hours?
    --
    I am unsure of my equation, so can someone check it?

    40(100)=80x
    x=50

    50 men are needed to finish the job in 80 hours.

    Is this correct?
