4 men can build 4 boats in 4 days. How long does it take 1 man to build 1 boat?

4 days. It takes 4 men to build 1 boat in 1 day and 4 boats in 4 days, therefore it takes 1 man to build 1 boat in 4 days.

Unlikely that 1 man could build 1 boat in 4 days.... It seems like teamwork would be involved in 4 men building 1 a day. So without someone to hold the other end of the board, the 1 builder would be at a loss!
