once upon a time, Cyrus bought many lollipop candy. each lollipop had a stick.
after eating 181 lollipops, someone told him if he could get 1 free lollipop by exchange his 13 lollipop sticks.
so Cyrus went to Lollipop Shop and exchange all Sticks he had. the shop attendant gladly accepted Cyrus sticks.
How much Lollipop did Cyrus get?
Let me ask a quiz to all here :-
A box is kept in a dark room.Inside that box there are 56 grey socks and 73 black socks.If Nikhil need a pair of any colour socks then the maximum socks he had to take out of the box is??
Note:- You cannot see the colour of the socks.
Ok this is bow I understood:
after eating 181 lollipops he had 181 sticks.
someone gave him 13 sticks for a lollipop. now he had 181 + 13 sticks = 194.
he went to the shop and exchanged each 13 stick for 1 lollipop.
so 194 divided by 13 = 14 lollipops.
so the answer is 14.
This is how it works.
Has 181 sticks. Gives 13. Has 168. Gets 1 more stick. Has 169.
Has 25 sticks. Gives 13. Has 12. Gets 1 more stick. Has 13.
Has 13 sticks. Gives 13. Has 0. Gets 1 more stick. END.
So, 181 + 181/12 = 196.
Total of 196 and he got 15 from sticks.
