# Thirty-two cyclists make a seven-day trip. Each cyclist requires 8.33 kilograms of food for the entire trip. If each cyclist wants to eat an equal amount of food each day, how many kilograms of food will the group be carrying at the end of Day 5?

Dec 20, 2017

$\text{76.16 kg}$

#### Explanation:

Since the consumption is equal per day, the consumption per day is

$\text{8.33 kg"/"7 days" = "1.19 kg/day} \to$ per person

Days left:

$\left(7 - 5\right) = 2$

Food left per person:

$\text{1.19 kg/day" * "2 days" = "2.38 kg}$

Total food left:

$\text{2.38 kg/person" * "32 persons" = "76.16 kg}$

So the group will be carrying $\text{76.16 kg}$ at the end of day $5$.
