Funsie: @bahrom7893 has \(x\) bananas. To prevent a mischievous monkey from stealing his precious assets, he hid them in seven tiny trunks, but there were three left over. Being the meticulous primate that he is, he took them and tried to put them in five tall shelves instead, but there were four left over. Just as he was about to throw an enormous simian tantrum, he remembered one of his good-old co-primates--who happened to own three huge peanut barrels. He stored his bananas in them, and there were none left over. At least how many bananas does he have? Hint 1: Use the Chinese Remainder Theorem\[x\equiv3\text{ }(\text{mod }7)\]\[x\equiv4\text{ }(\text{mod }5)\]\[x\equiv0\text{ }(\text{mod }3)\]
