A project can be done by 70 men in 100 days. There were 80 men at the start of the project but after 50 days, 20 of them had to be transferred to another project. How long will it take the remaining workforce to complete the job?
The correct answer is 50.
Any hints on how to go about this? I have encountered work problems before with the general formula $$\frac1A + \frac1B + \dots = \frac1T.$$
There's also problems with time involved:
$$t_A\left(\frac1A + \frac1B\right) + t_B\left(\frac1C + \frac1D\right) \dots = 1.$$
This problem incorporates people leaving, remaining days. But I am not sure how to combine them concepts.
