Alexander, who weighs 159lbs , decides to climb Mt. Krumpett, which is 5460ft high. For his food supply, he decides to take nutrition bars. The label on the bars states that each 100g bar contains 10g of fat, 40g of protein, and 50g of carbohydrates.Alexander wants to know exactly how many bars to pack in his backpack for the journey. To provide a margin of safety, he assumes that he will need as much energy for the return trip as for the uphill climb. How many bars should Alexander pack?

How would I even go about solving this problem? The total calories is 450 for a total bar that I calculated, is this right?
