If the wages of 12 workers for 5 days are Rs.7500, find the wages of 17 workers for 6 days.

Hint:

Hint:
Unitary methods: The unitary method is a method in which we find the value of a unit and then the value of a required number of units. For example, If 10 apples cost is 100 rupees, 1 apple will cost 10 rupees and if we are asked to find the cost of 100 apples, we can find it by multiplying 100 with cost of 1 apple.

The correct answer is: Rs.12750.


    Step 1 of 2:
    It is given that Rs.7500 is the wages of 12 workers for 5 days.
    Wage of 1 worker for 1 day = fraction numerator text Total wages end text over denominator text No.of workers × no.of days end text end fraction
    = fraction numerator 7500 over denominator 12 space cross times space 5 end fraction = Rs.125
    Step 2 of 2:
    Now we are asked to find the total wages of 17 workers for 6 days.
    Total wages = Wage of 1 worker for 1 day cross times No. of workers cross times No. of days
    =125 cross times 17 cross times 6
    =Rs.12750
    Final Answer:
    Hence, the wages of 17 workers for 6 days are Rs.12750.
