At a sports camp, there is sufficient food for 72 athletes to last 6 days.  If 18 athletes are absent from the camp, how many more days can the food last for the other athletes?  State the assumption made.

There are 72*6=432 portions of food. Now there are 18 athletes absent, so there are 72-18=54 athletes. 432/54=8 days.
