Medal for those who got the correct answer.
As they say, beggars can't be choosers, in fact begger take what they can get. 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?
Good Luck.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Perfect. Very good. Solution: 14 If the begger can make a whole cigarette from 6 butts then he can make 12 cigarettes from the 72 he found. Once he smokes those, he then will have another 12 butts, which gives him enough to make another 2 cigarettes. A total of 14.
