Word problems are my favorite type of math questions! I would not feel comfortable answering questions that require specialized knowledge (Physics, Statistics, etc.) because I have not studied these in depth.
I tutor students (fifth through twelfth grades) and am a Top Contributor on Yahoo!Answers with over 24,000 math solutions.
Co-author of An Outline of Scientific Writing: For Researchers With English as a Foreign Language.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley, and a Master of Business Administration degree from The Wharton School.

Aiden began with n fruit. His friend received (⅕)n fruit, leaving Aiden with (⅘)n fruit. His sister received (½)(⅘)n fruit, leaving Aiden with (½)(⅘)n fruit. (½)(⅘)n
Your conversion factor is the speed of work, i.e., amount of time per job. men × days gives you the amount of time houses is the number of jobs so the speed of work is the number of man-days per house
195 workers × 20 days = 3,900 worker-days 3,900 worker-days × (10 hours)/day = 39,000 worker-hours The job takes 39,000 worker-hours to complete the job. W workers × 15 days × (13 hours)/day = 195W
"20 workers can paint 5 houses in 10 days." 20 workers × 10 days = 200 worker-days (200 worker-days)/(5 houses) = (40 worker-days)/house 2 houses × (40 worker-days)/house = 80 worker-days (80 worker-days)/(8
Depends on the phrasing of the question, i.e., what you're trying to solve for. Without seeing the question, I'm guessing you need to determine how long it would take a certain number of men to paint
