Question

Baker X and Baker Y bake an equal number of muffins everyday. X can bake 1876 muffins in 7 days. Y can bake 1773 muffins in 9 days. How many muffins can X and Y bake together in 8 days?

It stated X and Y bake equal number everyday but 1876/7 is not equal to 1773/9. I am confused. Did i misunderstand the sentence?

Answer

Yes, it is really confusing.  I was confused by the statements as you were.  I think maybe there’s an error with the problem statement?
