10 small boxes into a carton- Math Riddle
A merchant can place 8 large boxes or 10 small boxes into a carton for shipping. In one shipment, he sent a total of 96 boxes. If there are more large boxes than small boxes, how many cartons did he ship?
7 large boxes (7 x 8 = 56 boxes)
4 small boxes (4 x 10 = 40 boxes)
So the answer is 11 total cartons for 96 boxes
