1200 soldiers in a fort had enough food for 28 days.After 4 days some soldiers were transferred to another fort and thus the food lasted for an extra 32 days .How many soldiers left the fort?

 Hi!
Here is the answer to your question.
 
Let x number of soldiers are transferred from the fort after 4 days.
After 4 days. The food would last for 28 – 4 = 24 days for 1200 soldiers.
The given information can be represented as
 
300 soldiers are transferred
Thus, the number of soldiers left in the fort = 1200 – 300 = 900
 
Hope! You got the answer.
 
Cheers!
