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?
