Walter, Agnes, and Holly are making beaded lizards. Walter has 476 green beads and 32 red beads. Agnes has 104 green beads and 16 red beads. Holly has 281 green beads and 80 red beads. They all share their beads so as to make the largest possible number of lizards. If a beaded lizard requires 94 green beads and 16 red beads, what is the number of green beads left over?

We have  476 + 104 + 281 =   861 green beads

And we have 32 + 16 + 80 =  128 red beads

 

861/ 94 ≈  9.2  

128 / 16  =  8

 

We  only have enough red beads to make  8  lizards

 

So....the number of green beads left over  is 

 

861 - 8 (94)  =  109 left over
