Firstly, they would drink 2.6 gallons every 5 days for 240 days. Secondly, 240 days overall divided by every 5 days would be 48 days of distributing drinking water (240/5=48). Thirdly, you would have 48 distributing days multiplied by 2.6 which is the amount of water distributed this would give them 124.8 gallons distributed in the 240 days to a single person (48 x 2.6= 124.8). In the final analysis, they have multiplied 124.8 by 4 since that is how many people are in their group which gave them 499.2 gallons of water used (124.8 x 4= 499.2). Since only 41% of the cow and bull’s weight are consumable the group has a total of 409147.2 grams, or 902 servings, of consumable meat divided by four (902/4=225.5) then into 1.5 servings, or 680.4 grams, per 2 days and 3 bushels of wheat that is plenty for the first 120 days.
