 A corny problem 2007-04-21 Robby pose la question :My name is Robby and I need help with a problem. I have found at least 4 correct answers, but I can't figure out how I got the answer or if there is a formula that I can use. I got my answers by trial and error. Problem: One hundred bushels of corn are to be divided among 100 men, women, and children. Men get 3 bushels each. Women get two bushels each. Children get 1/2 bushel each. How can the bushels be distributed with no leftovers? Is there more than one solution? So far, I have 4 answers: 8 men,20 women, and 72 children, 2 men, 30 women, and 68 children, 5 men, 25 women, and 70 children, and 11 men, l5 women, and 74 children. I need to know if there is a formula to use, or if it's just trial and error, or if a pattern is involved.Stephen La Rocque and Penny Nom lui répond.
