A certain work has to be done by 6 workers for 8 days, but 2 of the workers got hurt, thus cannot work. How many days will it take for the rest ofthe workers to do the work? (Please explain  how you solved this)

1 job = 6 workers x 8days  = 48 worker-days    to get the job done

4 workers *  'x' days = 48 worker-days ?

48 worker-days / 4 workers = 12 days to get the job done.
