A woman was carrying a basket of eggs to market when a passer-by bumped her. She dropped the basket and all the eggs broke. The passer-by, wishing to pay

for her loss asked 'How many eggs were in your basket?' I don't remember exactly, the woman replied, but I do recall that whether I divided the eggs by 2,3,4,5 or 6 there was always one egg left over. When I took the eggs out in groups of seven, I emptied the basket. Can you find atleast how many eggs were ther in the basket?


It means that only a number that dived with 7 will have not remainder.
