70 men can complete a 150m long wall in 12 days.How many men will complete the wall 600m long in 30 days ?

150 m `-:` 12 days = 12.5 m/day
12.5 m/day `-:` 70 men = 5/28 m per man per day
So one man can be expected to complete 5/28 m in one day.
600 m `-:` 30 days = 20 m/day
So in order to build the 600 m wall in 30 days, the men need to build 20 m/day.
Use the equation:
5/28 * x = 20, where x is the number of men
x = 20 `-:` 5/28
x = 112
Answer: 112 men
