A hunting lodge has enough fuel to keep 20 rooms heated for fourteen days. If the lodge decides to save fuel by turning off the heat in 5 unoccupied rooms, and each room requires the same amount of fuel to heat it, how many extra FULL days will the fuel supply last?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess you could do a proportion: 20/14 = 15/x 20x = 210 /20 on both sides x = 10.5 So they will last 10 extra full days I believe

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The fuel is enough for 20*14 = 280 roomdays. If you're heating 15 rooms, you can sustain heat for 280/15 = 18.6666... days. That's four extra FULL days.
