The Camel & Bananas

You want to transport 3,000 bananas across 1,000 kilometers. You have a camel that can carry 1,000 bananas at most. However, the camel must eat 1 banana for each kilometer that it walks. What is the largest number of bananas that can be transported?

Can you solve it?

For extra credit, try deriving a general formula if you have B bananas, need to travel D distance, and the camel has a carrying capacity of C.
