Official Solution:

If three people working at the same rate can complete the job in 35 hours, how much time would be saved if two more people were added to the group?

A. 10 hours
B. 14 hours
C. 18 hours
D. 20 hours
E. 21 hours

One man would complete the job in \(35*3 = 105\) hours. Five people would complete the job in \(\frac{105}{5} = 21\) hours. \(35 - 21 = 14\) hours would be saved.

Answer: B

I solved this by putting a proportion together:
3/x= 1/35 and 5/x=unknown, x are being cancelled out and unknown= 1/21, which 14 hr difference from 1/35.
