8 hours

find how long it takes 3 people to do the whole job
then divide that by 4

for whole job time by 3 people = 12 * 8
----- = 32 hours
3
- now divide that by 4...

But why not 12/8=3/x as a proportion?

no - the number of hours for 3 people must take more time than when 12 people do it ( time 4)

I see.

this is inverse proportionality
less people - more hours

h = k/p
when h = 8, p = 12
8 = k/12
k = 96
so h = 96/p
when p = 3
h = 96/3 = 32
