5 men = 8 women(in terms of working capability)------[1]

now,3men + 5 women = 10.

their 1 day's work is:

3 men + 5 women = 1/10

=>30 men + 50 women = 1--------[2]

from [1],1 men = 8/5 women----[3]

[3] in [2],

30*8/5 women + 50 women = 1.

=>(48+50) women = 1.

=>98 women = 1.

that means, 98 women can do the work in 1 day.

therefore, in 14 days = 98/14 women can do it.

= 7 women.
