Mazie counted her dimes. When she put them in groups of 4, she had 2 left over. When she put them in groups of 5, she had one left over. What is the smallest number of dimes she could have, if she has more than 10

    14 dimes

    how did you come up with this answer

  • 3rd grade - ,

    It looks like Rinzin made 3 piles of 4 = 12 and with 2 over - 14. If you only made 2 piles of 4 = 8 with 2 over = 10
    BUT the "rules" say more than 10.

    Now, if you take 2 piles to 5 (10) with 1 left over = 11.

    IF, however it is the same amount of dimes and you can do BOTH things:
    11 piles of 4 = 44 + 2 = 46 and then
    9 piles of 5 = 45 + 1 = 46

    The answer must be 46.
