# 1200 soldiers in a fort had enough food for 28 days.After 4 days some soldiers were transferred to another fort and the food lasted now for 32 more days.How many soldiers left the fort? Are the expressions 32 MORE DAYS (used in this question), and just 32 DAYS same?Will the answer be same in both cases.Please solve and and also answer my second query.Thanks 300 soldiers left.Initial soldiers =1200 and the number of days they can take food is: 28Let soldiers left after few left = nSo n number of soldiers took food for 32 days.So,1200×28 = 1200×4 + n × 32n = 900Therefore 1200-900 => 300 soldiers left.Food lasted for 32 more days is 32+4 , total 36 days.Food lasted for 32 days is 28 + 4, total 32 days.  what is 1200x28 ? how we are thinking in this way ?

1200 soliders have enough food for 28 days.After four days n soliders were sent to another fort.The food last for 32 more days.then,
1200 soliders has food for 28 days
1200-n soliders has food for 28+32 days
you do cross multiplication then you will get answer
SO SOLUTION IS 900
