Aaron, Bob and Carl sold pies at a funfair. Aaron sold 5/8 of the total number of

pies. Bob sold 5/6 of the remaining pies and Carl sold the rest. Aaron sold 1287

more pies than Carl.

 

a)       How many pies did Bob sell?

b)       How many pies did they sell altogether?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Total number of pies => x

 

Aaron sold = 5/8(x)             Bob sold = 5/6(3x/8)             Carl sold = 1/6(3x/8)

 

"Aaron sold 1287 pies more than Carl."

 

5x/8 - 1/6(3x/8) = 1287  

 

x = 2288           (Number of pies they sold altogether)

 

Bob sold =>         5/6(3x/8) = 715 pies
