Difficulty: EasyPuzzle Details

After a day picking strawberries I had a basket full.

I ate 5 and gave Geoff half of the remaining.

I then ate another 3 and gave Simon one third of the remaining.

I ate another 6 and then gave Kim two thirds of the remaining.

I now had 34 strawberries left. How many did I start with?

Answer: 335 strawberries.

I started with 335.

Ate 5 leaving 330, giving 165 away (leaving me with 165).

I then ate another 3 leaving 162, and gave away 54 (leaving 108).

I ate 6 more leaving 102, and gave away 68.

This left me with 34. QED.
