# Thread: a a tricky one

1. ## Re: a a tricky one

If for every 3 wrappers I get 1 soap free ( with wrapper of course )
How many soaps do I need to buy to get 20 soaps

Easy one.....
for every 3 soaps we get 1 more soap

3=4(3+1)
6=8(6+2)
9=12(9+3)
12=16(12=4)
15=20(15+5)

so to get 20 soaps we have to buy 15 soaps......

I think I am correct.....
correct me if i am wrong!!!!!!!!!!!

251/11 = 22 soaps(22 scraps) and 9 scraps
22 scraps leaves 2 more soaps(22+2(2 scraps))
that 2 scraps will be added with 9 scraps to get 1 more soap(22+2+1(1scrap))

So final answer is 25 soaps and 1 scrap remaining......
