    A begger on the street can make one cigarette out of every 6 cigarette butts he finds. After one whole day of searching and checking public ashtrays the begger finds a total of 72 cigarette butts. How many cigarettes can he make and smoke from the butts he found?

    Divide 72 by 6 and trim off the remainder since he can't smoke just a part of a cigarette

    72 / 6 = 12 then he can make 2 cigarettes form 12 butts so the total is 14
