**Reiny**, Monday, May 28, 2012 at 11:20amjob requires 12(6) = 72 man-hours

They work for 1 hour, so 12 man-hours are used up, leaving 60 man-hours for the job to be done

Second shift has 20 men,

so time needed to complete the job

= 60 man-hours/20 men

= 3 hours

(the above applies only in theory, it does not apply to city workers or the like. Doubling the number of men on a job in practise does not cut the required time in half. , (this is supposed to be a joke) )
