Question #11225

A grocery store sells eggs in cartons of 6 or 12. Last week's inventory report says the store sold 4,948 eggs. Your job is to check the inventory figures. What would you tell your boss?

Expert's answer

We simply devide 4,948 by 6 and get 824.66 so, something is wrong because we

sell eggs only in cartons of 6 or 12, which is both are divizible by 6, so the

total nubmer of eggs sold should be divizible too.
