Subject: The Board Problem
Mr. Avery has 3-foot boards and 4-foot boards. If he puts the 3-foot boards in a line, they have the same length as the 4-foot boards put in a line. Altogether he has between 16 and 25 boards. How many 3-foot boards does he have?
Since the number of boards used is at least 16 and you need more 3 foot then 4 foot boards, the number of 3 foot boards is greater than 8.
