# A construction team gives an estimate of three months to repave a large stretch of a very busy road with their core crew of 9 people. The government responds that it is too much of an inconvenience to have this busy road obstructed for three months, so the job must be completed in one month.If the relationship between construction time and crew members is inversely proportional, how many crew members does the construction team need if they are to complete the job in one month?Express your answer as an integer.

A construction team gives an estimate of three months to repave a large stretch of a very busy road with their core crew of 9 people. The government responds that it is too much of an inconvenience to have this busy road obstructed for three months, so the job must be completed in one month.

If the relationship between construction time and crew members is inversely proportional, how many crew members does the construction team need if they are to complete the job in one month?

Step 1

In chemistry there are many ways to check the deviation of experimental data from the accurate value. These different methods provide difference between accuracy and precisions of the experimental data which can be further used to calculate the error percentage in the experiment.

Step 2

In the given information, the relationship between construction time and crew members is inversely proportional. Hence as the construction time will decrease the number of crew members should be increased.

Step 3

Hence if the construction time reduces three times from 3 month to 1 month, the crew members should increase ...
