    GiVen:

    • The men already in Garrison = 300 

    • Men went away = 150 

    AnSwer:

    Now,

    Total men now \sf\:( 300 + 150 ) = 450 men 

    According to the question,

    • 300 men provision 16 days 

    So,

    • 1 men provision\sf \: 16 \times 300 \:  days

    ★ Food will last for (450 men provision):-

      \implies\sf \: \dfrac{16 \times 30 \cancel0 }{45 \cancel0} \\  \implies\sf \: \dfrac{16 \times 30}{45} \\   \implies\sf \:11  \: days \: (approx.)

    Therefore, food will last for 11 days.
