A farmer has enough food to feed 20 animals in his cattle for 6 days. How long would the food last if there were 10 more animals in his cattle?
Let the number of days be x
Total number of animals=20+10=30
The number of days and animals are inversely proportional
Therefore, from inverse proportionality property, we have,
Hence, if there were 30 animals, the food will last for 4 days.
A farmer has enough food to deed 28 animals in his cattle for 9 days. How long would the food last, if there were 8 more animals in his cattle ?
