#### Answer:

We are given that in a fort, 1200 soldiers had enough food for 28 days.

Let *x* soldiers left after 4 days, thus, remaining soldiers = 1200 - *x*

Now, for these remaining soldiers food lasts for 32 days.

As number of soldiers decrease, food lasts long.

Thus, situation after 4 days is

$1200\times 24=\left(1200-x\right)\times 32\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left(1200-x\right)=\frac{1200\times 24}{32}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 1200-x=900\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=1200-900\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=300$

Thus, 300 soldiers left the fort after 4 days.
