Question

A school principal ordered 1000 pencils he gave an equal number to each of seven teachers in till he had given out as many as possible how many pencils were left?

1 Answer

  • 1000/7 would be the number form for the problem in order to solve this.
    1000/7 is 142.857142857
    Rounded, this would be .86
    .86 would be considered "the remainder"
    Therefore, 86 pencils were left.
    So your answer is most logically 86
