Question

A baker had some eggs. He used 1/7 of them on Monday and 1/11 of the rest on Tuesday. He bought another 153 eggs and then had as many eggs as he had at first. How many eggs did he have at first?

Answer

Hi Logan77!

First, you must find out how many eggs were left on Monday.

1-1/7= 6/7

after Monday, he has 6/7 eggs left.

after Tuesday, he has 6/7 * 10/11 = 60/77 eggs left.

1-60/77 = 17/77

17u = 153

77u = 693 eggs !
