1000 SOLDIERS IN A CAMP WITH SUPPLY OF 180 DAYS AFTER 20 DAYS 600 SOLDIERS JOINED TILL HOW MUCH TIME THE SUPPLY WILL LAST
Asked by 1081886 | 28th Jun, 2020, 06:12: PM
In the initial days, the number of soldiers = 1000
After 20 days, the remaining food is suffiecient for = 180 - 20 = 160 days (for 1000 soldiers)
After 20 days, 600 soldiers join.
So, the number of soldiers = 1000 + 600 = 1600
Let the remaining food lasts for x days for 1600 soldiers
1000 : 1600 = x : 160
x = 100
Hence, the remaining food lasts for 100 days.
