**Answer:**

## Solution :

The stock of grains in a warehouse lasts 8 days for 18 men .

We have to find the number of days this same stock lasts for 24 men.

Let this number of days be x .

As the stock remains fixed , we will be calculating using " man - days " method.

" ( Number of Men ) × ( Days ) = Constant

> ( M_1 ) × ( D_1 ) = ( M_2) × ( D_2) = Constant

> ( 18 ) × ( 8) = 24 × D_2

> 144 = 24 D_2

> D_2 = 6 days .

Hence , the same stock will will last for 6 days .

This is the required answer .
