If you look very carefully, you will see that there are actually two matchsticks under the other seven so you can take away eight matchsticks and still leave one behind.
Hidden in the grid below are eight, 7-letter words. Each word begins with the central R and you can move one letter in any direction to the next letter. All of the other letters are used exactly once each. What are the words?
T A E R O B O
E T G S T N W
R N E E A I E
I N U R E F R
N B U O E E E
B S E A E V E

Originally there was enough food for 135 people for 28 days, which totals 3780 rations.
After 9 days, 1215 rations had been eaten.
Therefore there were now 2565 rations left for 171 people, which would last for another 20 days at three-quarter rations per person = (2565 ÷ (3 ÷ 4)) / 171.
Which is 29 days in total from the original sinking.
