he will dig 7 1 and 1/2 holes

It is not possible to dig half a hole, it's either a hole or it's not a hole!

Assuming they can work in parallel, the answer should be 5. 5 men produce 1 hole per hour in the first example. At that rate, they produce 5 holes in 5 hours. The same 5 men, working at one hole per hour, should be able to produce 100 holes in 100 hours (assuming they don't need sleep, etc.)

The term is actually "half an hour" which is short for "half of an hour". This has same meaning as "half hour" or a rough approximation of 30 minutes.

1 hour and a half, or 90 minutes.
