**MathMate**, Tuesday, July 31, 2012 at 9:08pmAn obvious solution would be

7*3+5*20=121

Consequently, change 5*7 for 7*5 gives

7*(3+5)+5*(20-7)=7*8+5*13=121

Similarly,

7*(8+5)+5*(13-7)=7*13+5*6=121

We cannot go further because number of baskets for groups of 5 will be negative.

So possible values for baskets of 7 are:

3,8,13
