Let the no,of eggs Rosanna had in  the beginning be x 
No.of eggs sold on saturday = 1/4 of x
= x/4
Remaining eggs = x - x/4 = 3x/4\
Eggs sold on Sunday = 1/6 of 3x/4
=3x/24
Remaining eggs on sunday = 3x/4 - 3x/24 = 15x/24 
But given that no.of remaining eggs on sunday = 140
⇒15x/24 = 140
⇒15x = 140 × 24
⇒x = 3360/15
⇒x = 224
Therefore no.of eggs he had at first = 224.
