2 men and 3 boys can do a piece of work in 16 days. 
5 men and 6 boys can do a piece of work in 7 days. 
4 men and 8 boys can do a piece of work in ? days. 
D = RT 
Let a combination of m + b be the "rate" in this problem. 

(2m + 3b)16 = (5m + 6b)7 
32m + 48b = 35m + 42b 
-3m = -6b 
m = 2b 
1m = 2b. 
We now know 1 man equals workload of 2 boys. 
Basically now (since 1 men = 2boys) 

5 boys can do the work in 16 days. 
16 boys can do the work in 7 days. 
16 boys can do the work in 7 days. 

But 16 boys is the equivalent of 4 men and 8 boys, so it 's 7 days.
