If a shopkeeper sold 15 boxes of pencils on Mon and Tues. He sold 3 more boxes on Mon then on Tues. There were 12 pencils in each box. How many pencils did he sell on Monday.

  • Math -

    M + T = 15

    M = T + 3
    --------------
    2 T + 3 = 15

    T = 6 boxes on Tues
    so
    9 boxes on Monday
    9*12 = 108
