# Q8. A factory requires machines to produce a given number of articles in days. How many machines would be required to produce the same number of articles in days?

Given that a factory requires 42 machines to produce a given number of articles in 63 days.

Then we know that as the number of machines increases the time taken to produce a given number of articles decreases. Hence there holds an inverse relation here,
