I have great difficulty understanding the solution. I'll go through it line by line:
c boys can mow a acres in b days. This condition is from the problem and I understand it.
1 boy can mow a acres in bc days. Why not b/c days? After all isn't 1 boy from c/c=1?
n boys, or 1 man, can mow a acres in bc/n days. Why suddenly divide by n?
And then I'm totally lost from here.
