    Answer:

    we know that no. of days is inversely propotional to the provision for men.

    So for 120 men the provision would last for 30days. (given)

    Therefore, the provision for 1 men would sustain for. 120 *30 = 3600 days.

    Let after the joining of 5 men (after 5 days) the no of more days the provision would last is x days

    A.t.q 120*30 = 120*5+125*x

    (120*30) – (120*5)= 125x

    120(30-5)=125x

    120 * 25 = 125x

    120 = 5x

    x=120/5

    x= 24

    so the provision would remain for more 24 days.
