A merchant can place 8 large boxes or 10 small boxes into a carton for shipping. In one shipment, he sent a total of 96 boxes. If there are more large boxes than small boxes, how many cartons did he ship?
I got 11 :D
7 cartons full of large boxes, and 4 cartons full of small boxes.
56 + 40 = 96, and so we have 11 cartons.
