    If two workers can wax 4 cars in 4 hours.. Then each of them washed 2 cars a piece and it took them 4 hours. If you wash 2 cars in 4 hours then you washed each car in 2 hours. Worker one .... 2 cars in 4 hours Worker two.... 2 cars in 4 hours or Worker one ... 1 car in 2 hours Worker two... 1 car in 2 hours so each work would get 1 car done in 2 hours. In 10 hours each worker would get 5 cars done. So the 5 workers would get 25 cars done.

    Or in a more simpler way, if every 2 workers ---> wax 2 cars then 5 workers ---> wax x cars? cross multiply and you will get : x = 10 cars I guess :)
