In a camp, 120 men has food for 200 days. After 5 days, 30 men left the camp. how many days food is for?

Hello Niketan,

Sorry for my delay...somehow I missed your question until today!

Anyhow...

For the sake of convenience, let's say each man needs one unit of food per day.

Thus, for 120 men over 200 days, 120*200 = 24,000 units of food are needed.

So, we start with 24,000 units of food. After 5 days, 5*120 = 600 units of food

have been consumed, leaving 23,400 units for the remaining 90 men (after 30 leave).

23,400 units divided by 90 men gives 260. Hence, 260 days of food for the remaining

men.
