    Day 1 = x

    Day 2 = x+6

    Day 3 = x +12

    Day 4 = x + 18

    Day 5 = x + 24

    Add them all up and you get:

    5x + 60

    So....5x + 60 = 115

    Subtract 60 from each 'side', and you get:

    5x = 55

    Solve for x by dividing both sides by 5

    x = 11

    So.....

    Day 1 = 11

    Day 2 = 17

    Day 3 = 23

    Day 4 = 29

    Day 5 = 35

    i assume in case you like working to the bathing room all day long. i do no longer propose ingesting all of them day nonetheless, yet a pair widespread won't be able to harm. Metamucil is something docs propose ingesting a minimum of as quickly as an afternoon, so i could assume the comparable for prunes. There are human beings obtainable who take laxatives to drop some pounds and interior the long-term which could impact you. So like something devour prunes sparsely.
