if three persons can weave 168 shawls in 14 days ,how many shawls will be woven by 8 persons in 5 days.

Then, 3 persons in 1 day can weave $\frac{168}{14}$ shawls.

So, 1 person in 1 day can weave $\frac{168}{14\times 3}$ i.e. 4 shawls.

Then, 8 persons in 1 day can weave $8\times 4$ i.e. 32 shawls

So, 8 persons in 5 days can weave $32\times 5$ i.e 160 shawls.

Therefore, there will be 160 shawls woven by 8 persons in 5 days.
