Q. 11

<span lang="EN-US

Answer :

Given that 500 soldiers in a fort had enough food for 30 days


Let the number of soldiers that left the fort be x


After 6 days, number of soldiers = (500 – x)


Given that food lasted for 32 more days.


Hence 500 × 24 = (500 – x) × 32


(500 – x) = 375


x = 500 – 375 = 125


Thus 125 soldiers left the fort.
