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
