Question of critical path

Postby nagarwal Mon Sep 01, 2014 3:28 pm

Activity A has a duration of 6 days and has 4 days of free float. The ES of successor activity B is day 18. If activity A is delayed by 7 days, what is the adjusted early start of activity B? More than knowing the right answer,it would be great to know the way to calculate it?
Day 11
Day 21
Day 31
Day 25

Free Float. The amount of time that a schedule activity can be delayed without delaying the early start date of any
successor or violating a schedule constraint.
