Allowing each soldier five ounces of protein each day, an army of 600 soldiers has enough provisions for five weeks. With the same total amount of provisions, how many soldiers could be fed for 10 weeks if each soldier receives only three ounces of protein per day?

Total protein:  P = 5 oz/(soldier*day) * 600 soldiers * 5*7 days = 105,000 oz

 

105,000 oz = 3 oz/(soldier*day) * N soldiers * 10*7 days     Solve for N
