If 5/2 artists make 5/2 paintings using 5/2 canvases in 5/2 days then how many artists are required to make 25 paintings using 25 canvases in 25 days?

5/2 Days, As each artists required 5/2 days to complete 1 painting.

Let arrange the date properly

5/2 artists ---> make 5/2 paintings ---> 5/2 canvases ====> in 5/2 days
5/2 artists ---> make 1 paintings ---> 5/2 canvases ====> in 5/2 days/5/2 i.e. 1 day
5/2 artists ---> make 1 paintings ---> 1 canvases ====> 1 day/5/2 i.e. 2/5 day
1 artist ---> make 1 paintings ---> 1 canvases ====> 2/5 day*5/2 i.e 1 (here * will come as less artist more days)

Now we have
1 artist ---> make 1 paintings ---> on 1 canvases ====> in 1 day

Now solve the given one
1 artist ---> make 1 paintings ---> on 25 canvases ====> in `1*25` i.e. 25 days
1 artist ---> make 25 paintings ---> on 25 canvases ====> in `25*25` days
or
25 artist ---> make 25 paintings ---> on 25 canvases ====> in `25*25` days/25 i.e. 25 days

So total 25 artist required
