    10 Men completing the work in 6 Days makes the TOTAL WORK = 60 Mandays = 60 MD

    15 Women completing the same work in 5 Days makes the TOTAL WORK = 75 Womandays = 75 WD
    So, 60 MD = 75 WD
    1 MD = 1.25 WD
    Now, 8 Men and 5 Women complete (8 MD + 5 WD) of work per day.
    (8 MD + 5 WD) = (8×1.25 WD+5 WD) = 15 WD
    So, time taken to complete = 75WD/15WD = 5 days
