The contractor finishes 1.5 km in 60 days with 140 people.

That means, he finishes, 0.5 km in 20 days with 140 people.

He has 200 - 60 = 140 days left to finish the job.

Let's say 20 days is 1 unit of time.

So the contractor finishes 0.5 km in 1 unit of time with 140 people, He has 4.5 kms to finish in 7 units of time(7 × 20 days) with n people.

The working capacity of the peopl should still be the same...

Therefore, \\frac{0.5}{140}) * 1 = \\frac{4.5}{n}) * \\frac{1}{7})

n = 180.

Therefore, the contractor needs, 180 - 140 = 40 people more.
