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.

    well about 12 because the cigarette butts can vary in size

    72/6 = 12 cigarettes from these 12 cigarettes there are 12 butts so he can make another 2 cigarettes from these 12 so i would say 14

    Perfect. 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.
