A goods ship takes 25 days to reach Cochin from Kolkata. The ship began its journey towards Cochin with 850 gms of food for each sailor. After 13 days, they rescued 15 passengers from a drowned ship and increased the speed of ship to reach Cochin within 10 days. How much food each man will consume so that they can reach Cochin safely without being hungry?
