Tom Barker pose la question : My eighth grade niece called with the following homework problem: A teacher wanted to divide her class into equally numbered groups. She tried to divide the class into groups of two, but was one student short. She tried to divide the class into groups of five, but was one student short. She tried to divide the class into groups of seven and was successful. What is the least number of students that were in her class? I know the answer is 49, but don't know how to prove it. I must be getting old if I can't solve eighth grade math problems. Your assistance would be appreciated. Penny Nom lui répond.

Faye Tan pose la question : I am a trainee teacher. I would appreciate it very much if you could help me solve the following two problems which I think are meant for students at middle grade. 1. If a hen and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half, how many hens are needed to lay a dozen eggs in one day? 2. There are fewer than 200 passengers on a train. If they get off in pairs, one passenger will be without a partner. If they get off in groups of 3 or 4, there will still be one passenger left by himself. However, if they get off in groups of 5, no one will be left by themselves. How many passengers are there on the train? Penny Nom lui répond.
