there are fewer than 6 dozen eggs in a basket. if i cout them by 2s, there is obne left over. if i count by 3s, there are 2 left over. three are left if i count them by 4s. four are left if i count by 5s. how many eggs are there

• math -

Six dozen = 72 eggs

From counting by 2s, you know that it is an odd number, since one is left over. The last sentence indicates that you need an odd number of 5s to have an odd number with 4 left over (5, 15, 25, 35, 45, 55, 65) to give 9, 19, 29, 39, 49, 59 or 69 eggs.

Which of these fit the other requirements?

I hope this helps.
