Have been trying to help my daughter solve several word problems. The first 8 have to equal one of 5 different sums to get to the final answer. This problem is the only one I can think of that may have more than one answer. How many rectangular tables like the one shown (table with 6 chairs around it) are needed so that none of the 14 persons has to sit at a separate table?

If each table can sit six people. And there are 14 people.
14/6 rounded up = 3.
Does that work for one of the sums you need?
So far the sum is 154 but the choices are 153 145 116 152 and 155 I have checked all of the other equations and believe them to be correct. Do you have to put 6 at each table?? Can you put 7 or 3 3 3 3 2 ??
