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.
