Total number of workers is considered as x

Average of 12 officers salary = 12 x 400 = 4800

4800 + 56x = ( 12 + x ) x 60

4800 + 56x = 720 + 60x

4x = 4080

X = 1020

∴ Total number of workers = 12 + x = 12 + 1020 = 1032

Their average salary = Rs 60

Total salary of all workers = 60x

Average salary of 12 officers = Rs 400

Total salary of 12 officers = 12 × 400 = Rs 4800

Average salary of rest of employees = Rs 56

Total salary of these rest of employees = (x - 12)×56

⇒ (x - 12)×56 + 4800 = 60x

⇒56x - 672 + 4800 = 60x

⇒ 4x = 4128

⇒ x = 1032

Total number of workers in the factory = 1032
