Question

In a scout camp, there is a food provision for 300 cadets for 42 days. If 50 more persons join the camp for have days will the provision last?


Solution

Initially there were 300 persons in the camp who had food for 42 days. Now, with more 50 coming in, there are a total of 350 persons and say the food will now last for x day, then
$$300\times 42=350\times x$$
$$\Rightarrow \cfrac{300\times 42}{350}=x$$
$$\Rightarrow x=36 \,days$$
