Four people can mow a lawn in 6 hours. How many more people will be needed to mow the lawn in 4 hours, assuming each person mows at the same rate?

We can use the "see-saw"  principle, here

 

4 people * 6 hours  = x people * 4 hours

 

24   =  x * 4   divide both sides by 4

 

24 / 4  = x   =   6 people
