Homework Help: math logic

Posted by gina on Friday, October 17, 2008 at 12:22am.

There were 1320 pumpkins in a pumpkin patch,
but it was difficult for farmer Joe to find the
perfect pumpkin.
Every third pumpkin was too small.
Every fourth pumpkin was too green.
Every fifth pumpkin had a broken stem.
Every sixth pumpkin had the wrong shape.
How many perfect pumpkins did farmer Joe find
in the pumpkin patch?

we thought the answer was 440. 1320/6=220. Then 1320-220=1100. then 1100/5=220. then subtract 1100-220=880 nd so on...does that make sense?
