1. 150balls are put into two boxes A and B. If the number of balls in box B is a multipleof that in box A , suggest two pairs of the numbers balls in boxes A and B.Factors of 150 : 1,2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 25, 30, 75, 150

1x150, 2x75,3x50,5x30, 6x25, 10x15, 15x10, 2x6, 30x5, 50x3, 75x2, 150x1

If A = 1, B = 2x(150-1),

A+B

= 1+1x(150-1)

= 1+1x149

=1+149

=150

If A = 2, B = 2x(75-1),

A+B

= 2+2x(75-1)

= 2+2x74

=2+148

=150

1. 10,140 or 50, 100

2. thirteen $1.4 stamps and eight $2.5 stamps (=$38.2, the only solution that can give 38.2)

or three $2.5 stamps and 22 $1.4 stamps (this will give $38.3)
