### Solution

The formula is very simple

Let Manish and Sohan's together work = T days = 12 days
Let Sohan's alone work = a days = 28 days
In order to find the work of Manish, apply the simple formula given below:

Ratio of times taken by Aamer and Baasha = 160 : 100 = 8 : 5
Suppose Baasha alone takes x days to do the job.
Then, 8 : 5 :: 12 : x → 8x = 5 × 12
x = 7 (1/2) days
