# In a scout camp, there is food provision for 300 cadets for 42 days. If 50 more persons join the camp, for how many days will the provision last

**Solution : **

The food provisions in a scout camp lasts for 42 days when there are 300 scouts. If 50 people join then the provisions will last for lesser number of days.

Using the unitary method we have:

__Scouts__ __Days__

300 42

350 x = ?

x = 42 (300/350)

x = 42 (6/7)

x = (42/7) 6

x = 6 6

x = 36 days

**✦ Try This: **In a scout camp, there is food provision for 360 cadets for 49 days. If 60 more persons join the camp, for how many days will the provision last?

__Scouts__ __Days__

360 49

420 x = ?

x = 49 (360/420)

x = 49 (6/7)

x = (49/7) 6

x = 7 6

x = 42 days

The provisions will last for 42 days if 60 more people join.
