Expert Answer:

If more persons do the same job then definitely it will take less time. Thus number of persons and number of days vary inversely.

Given: 8 persons complete the job in 12 days.

Let 24 persons compete the job in y days.

Now, in case of inverse variation the product of two quantities remain same, therefore

Hence, 24 persons will complete the job in 4 days.
