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?

440 is not the right answer... it's 528 with the venn diagram
but i don't know how the diagram is suppose to look
