Four people can mow a lawn in 6 hours. How many more people will be needed to mow the lawn in 14 hours, assuming each person mows at the same rate?

6+6=12= 8people

12+2=14=9 or 10 people 

I am not exactly sure what is correct, hope this helps.

Have a good life.

4 people * 6 hours / lawn    /  14hrs =  1.714 people       

 

14 hours is more than DOUBLE the time ....so the people required will be less tha 1/2  of the 4  

 

I will assume you meant  1.4 hours instead of 14 hours

 

4 people * 6 hours /lawn    / 1.4 hours =  17.14 people to mow the lawn in 1.4 hours  

     that is an additional 13.14 ~~ 13 additional people required to mow the lawn in 1.4 hours
