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!!

Thank YOu!!
