Math Problem for Homework, HELP PLEASE
December 1, 2010 8:36pm CST
I have to figure out this problem and I'm terrible with problem solving! Basically I have to figure out the answer but also come up with a few different ways of solving it and then modify or extend the problem for students. As of right now I have the method of using a table and using an equation. I'm not sure if I'm right though! Any help would be fantastic :) Of 6,000 apples harvested, every third apple was too small, every fourth apple was too green, and every tenth apple was bruised. The remaining apples were perfect. How many apples were too small, too green, bruised or perfect? What if n apples were harvested?

I think...based from what I've understood.. 1/3 of the apples were too small (2000), 1/4 of the apples were too green (1500) and 1/10 were bruised (600) .So the remaining apples would be (2000+1500+600) would be 4100.. YUM You just have to make an equation using the fractions..
