If it takes two men four day to dig one hole how long does it take one man to dig half a hole?

4 days (someone else's answer)New answer: I was asked this question as a personality test during a job interview. He made it clear that the question was not a math question. So when I had no answer he responded by saying that "you can't dig a half of a hole". I then replied that as an adult when I dig a hole, it is for a specific reason. That reason dictates the hole's dimensions. If I do not dig the hole to those dimensions then it is possible that I have not dug my whole hole and therefore it is possible to dig a half of a hole.


If it takes five men to dig a hole how many men does it take to dig half a hole?

3. because you cant split a man in half. But if u arw looking at it a little differently then 2 men and a boy. it will take 5 men to dig half of a hole they will just get it done faster and also you can't dig half of a hole unless you compare it to another hole i'm sorry ^^ incorrect. a man can't dig half a hole.

If it takes 7 men to dig a hole in 8 days how many men will it take to dig the hole in a half day?

If it takes 8 days for 7 men to dig a hole Then that same hole can be dug in 1 day by 7 x 8 = 56 men and in 1/2 day by 56 x 2 = 112 men. ALTERNATIVE : This can be regarded as an inverse proportion problem, namely as one quantity ( the number of men) increases then the other quantity (time to dig the hole) decreases . The number of man-days to dig the hole is 7 x 8 = 56 man days. This means that whatever number of men are used or whatever time it takes to dig the hole then the product of these quantities remains constant. If the hole is dug in 1/2 day then it will require 56 ÷ 1/2 = 56 x 2 = 112 men.
