# Construction of road

For the construction of the road dam, it is supposed to transport six trucks a total of 18 days. After three days, two more cars were sent to the construction site. How long will it take to carry the material?

Result

t =  14.25 d

#### Solution:

6*18 = 3*6+(t-3)*(6+2)

8t = 114

t = 574 = 14.25
