# Puzzle : Blueberries and Cups

#### Additional Details

Maria have some blueberries and some cups. If she put 9 blueberries into each cup she will have two cups left. If she put 6 blueberries into each cup she will have three blueberries left over.

The number of blueberries is equal to number of cups multiplied by 4 minus one left.

That is :

B = 9(C - 2) -> (1)

Then the number of blueberries will be equal to the number of cups times three plus one left.

That is :

B = 6C + 3 -> (2)

Now substitute the 1st and 2nd equations:

B = 9(C - 2)

B = 6C + 3

C = 7, B = 45.

Therefore Blueberries = 45 and cups = 7.

Subject: Math PuzzlesWhat 5 - digit number has the following features :

If we put the numeral 1 at the beginning, we get a number three times smaller than if we put the numeral 1 at the end of the number?

Let the 5 digit number be represented by abcde.

Then the 6 digit number, 1abcde x 3 = abcde1 (another 6 digit number)

Now let Y = abcde

Then (100000 + Y) x 3 = (Y x 10) + 1

300000 + 3Y = 10Y + 1

7Y = 299999

Y = 299999 ÷ 7 = 42857
