Let the number of eggs be x number of eggs sold on saturday=x/4 total eggs-eggs sold=eggs remained x-x/4=3x/4 eggs remained on saturday=3x/4 eggs sold on sunday=1/6(3x/4)=x/8 total number of sold eggs = x/8+x/4 =3x/8 eggs remained=x-3x/8=5x/8=140 5x=1120 x=224 NUMBER OF EGGS IN THE BEGINNING ARE 224

Solution : Let number of eggs = x Eggs sold on Saturday =x/4 Therefore , Remaining eggs = total eggs - eggs sold = x - x/4 =4x -x /4 =3x/4 Eggs sold on Sunday = 1/6 of Remaining eggs on saturday = 1/6*3x/4 =3x/6*4 =x/8 Hence The total number of eggs sold = x/4 +x/8 =x(1/4+1/8) =3x/8

We know that , Total number of eggs - total eggs sold = remaining eggs x -3x/8 =140 8x - 3x = 8*140 5x =1120 x=1120/5 x=224 Hope this helps you!!
