a.8 monkeys ate 8 bananas in 8 minutes so each one of them eating one banana in 8 minute so three monkey will take 8 minutes as they too eating one banana each.
b.it should be 8 too because 8 monkeys can eat 48 bananas in 48 minutes
as each will eat 6 bananas in 48 minutes so they will eat 8*6 = 48

@yadavundertaker mohit • 02 Dec, 2009 one monkey eat one banana in 8 minutes...

a) so for 3 monkeys they will take 8 minutes to eat 3 bananas..

b) total time taken =48 minutes
time taken for 1 banana = 8minutes

no. of monkeys = 48/8
=6
@vishnu priya • 02 Dec, 2009 first one should be 8 minutes because the time taken for one banana is 8 minutes,
therefore three monkeys eat three bananas each i n eight minutes.
@vishnu priya • 02 Dec, 2009 second question::time to consume a single banana is 8 minutes therefore in 48 minutes six bananas are consumed by six monkeys!
