This one caught me for a while.

Where F represents food at the end of each period F0, F1, F2, F3

F0 = 75 * 90 = 6750

F1 = F0 - (75 soldiers * 10 days) = 6750 - 750 = 6000

F2 = F1 - (50 soldiers * 10 days) = 6000 - 500 = 5500

F3 = F2 - (55 soldiers * x days remaining), but F3 = 0 (no food left!)
0 = 5500 - 55x
x = 100 days remaining

total food =15*90
which should b equal to 75*10 + 50*10+ 100+55*x where x is the number of remainingdays

15*90 = 75*10 + 50*10+ 100+55*x
solving this equation of x gives me 100
hence B 100
