Five men can move a weight of 125 kg through a distance of 5 meters in 10 minutes. how much time will be taken by 10 men to move a weight of 250 kg through a distance of 15 meters?

options:
1) 10 minutes
2) 20 minutes
3) 30 minutes
4) 40 minutes

well, my answer came out to be 3.33 minutes.

my way of doing was:
(125)/(5*10*5) = (250)/(10*x*15)
so, x=3.33 minutes
I suppose it is wrong.

5 men 125kg 5m in 10 mins
implies 1 man 125kg 1m in 10 mins
implies 1 man 250kg 0.5m in 10 mins
implies 10 men 250kg 0.5m in 1 min
implies 10 men 250kg 15m in 30 mins
