There were 63 piles of fruit put together. There are 7 different kinds of fruit. The piles were divided evenly among 23 travelers. Whats the number of fruit in each pile?
hint: consider the equation 63x + 7 = 23y
i have the equation done, 63(28) + 7 = 23(77)
but i don't exactly know what the numbers represent. My assumption is there are 207 pieces of fruit in each pile. lcm(63,23) = 1449, 1449/7 = 207. But i'm sure thats wrong. any ideas?
