She goed to her insurance agent, who askes her how many eggs she had. She says she doesn't know, but she remember somthings for various way she tried packing the eggs. She know that when she put the eggs in groups of 2,3,4,5 and 6 she had one left over. when she put the eggs in groups of 7 there were no eggs left over.

**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, September 16, 2007 at 5:16pmYou need to find a multiple of 7 that all of the numbers can go into with only 1 left over. I kept multiplying 7 by other numbers until I found the answer. Hint: it's a three-digit number that ends in 1.
