# The chocolate factory is preparing delivery of Valentine's chocolate boxes. In a single container, they can fit eight large chocolate boxes or ten small chocolate boxes. They send ninety - six chocolate boxes in one day using more large boxes than small ones. How many containers did they use?

Answer :

The shipment of 96 chocolate boxes can be made up of

1) 16 large boxes in 2 containers + 80 small boxes in 8 containers.

2) 56 large boxes in 7 containers + 40 small boxes in 4 containers.

3) 96 large boxes in 12 containers + 0 small boxes.

Since, in second situation big boxes are more than small boxes

∴ Number of boxes = 7 + 4 + 11 boxes
