5/2 artists make 5/2 paintings in 5/2 days so they make 1 per day. So, in 25 days they could make 25, therefore the answer is 5/2.

As no. each of of paintings, canvases and days are increased by 10 times no. of artists will be 1/10^3 of original.
So, no. of artists =1/400.
But practically ans =1.

5/2 painting
------
5/2 artist

=

10/10=1 painting by 1 artist in 5/2(2.5)days

1 artist = 10 paintings in 25 days
2.5 artist =25 painting in 25 days
5/2 artist required

If 5/2 artists make 5/2 paintings
using 5/2 canvases in 5/2 days then each artist can make one painting each day using one canvas. So mathematically 25 artists are required but practically only one is required because he can make all 25 paintings, one painting per day.
