    6 men and 5 women can do as much work as 30 children. So, you have 35 children worth resources total. If it takes 7 days for 40 children, how much does it take 35 children?

    If you look at the first statement....it says 3 men, 5 women and 10 children are "equal" resource amount. Then, it says you have 6 men, 5 women and 5 children. So, convert 6 men to equivalent children resource amount. That gives 20 children (3 men = 10 children). Similarly, 5 women are equal to 10 children. So, you end up with a total of 35 children worth of resources.

    The reason to convert all into "children" resources is because the problem gives you a second piece of information in that terms.

    If it takes 7 days for 40 children, how much does it take 35 children? 40*7/35 = 8
