John was having a hard time lining up his tin soldiers. He didn’t have that many (fewer than a hundred) but he couldn’t seem to arrange them in parade properly. He kept having numbers left over. He tried rows of 5 and there were 4 left over – rows of 6, 4 left over – rows of 7, 1 left over. He finally decided to have a very narrow parade and arranged them in rows of 4. This time it worked. What’s the smallest number of tin soldiers he could have?

I stroll daily at 2 miles an hour. My jogger friend, however, has worked to change this, saying, “Why don’t you jog? You’d cover the same 12-mile distance, and you’d save a lot of time.” I notice that he jogs exactly 3 times as fast as I stroll. How much time will I save if I jogged with him?

The local candy shop sold large packets of candy for 25c and small packets for 10c. The new cashier wasn’t up to the job, though; she marked down the number of packaets she sold, but forgot to record their prices. At the end of the day, she found she had sold 385 packs of candy and had $62.65 in cash. Fortunately, she figured out how many of each size of packs of candy she had sold before her boss came by. Can you?
