Q:
# Mama had several notebooks. If she give 13 notebooks to each of her children, she will have 8 left. If she give 15 notebooks to each of her children, she will have nothing left. What is the smallest number of notebooks and children does mama have?

Accepted Solution

A:

n= 13*c+8

n=15*c

15c=13c+8

15c-13c=8

2c=8

c=8:2

c=4 children

n= 15*4=60 notebooks

n=15*c

15c=13c+8

15c-13c=8

2c=8

c=8:2

c=4 children

n= 15*4=60 notebooks
