1. Given: 27 men can complete the job in 15 days.

2. Calculate the total amount of work in terms of men-days:

W = 27 \times 15

3. Let \( x \) be the number of days required for 18 men to complete the same work. Therefore:

18 \times x = W

4. Equate the work from both scenarios:

27 \times 15 = 18 \times x

5. Solve for \( x \):

x = \frac{27 \times 15}{18}

x = 22.5 \text{ days}

6. Answer: 18 men can complete the job inx = 22.5 days.
