Question reinstated by Melody!

156 would be how many cans there were to start with.

Every time you display a row it takes 8 cans so                              

the number of rows you have already stacked is r 

The number of cans already stacked is 8r

The number of cans left to stack is   156-8r

 

Draw a pic of the stacking cans if you are still confused.     Put 8 cans in each row!

 

You can do the second one yourself.  :)

Asker guest,

 

DO NOT DELETE your questions.

Other people learn from your questions and from the answers you are given. 

To delete them is very rude. 

 

You can always answer at the end (a new post on the same thread) with a thankyou and a comment that you understand now.

That is always appreciated :)
