28. A sock of corn will feed 18 ducks for 54 days. How long will it feed 12 ducks ?

* This is an example of an inverse proportion problem. As the number of ducks decreases the number of days increases.

N :  1  = 54 :  1 
      12           18

N( 1 ) =  1  (54)
    18     12

N =  1  x 54 x 18 days
       12

 1  : 600 =  11  : F
12              12


 1  F =  11  ( 600 )
