Question: 144 beads were distributed among some children. If there were 3 children fewer each child would have got 16 beads . How many children shared the beads?

Solution:

Let the number of children be x.

Therefore if there would be 3 children less then each would have get 16 beads.

That means number of children now=x-3

Therefore the condition can be written as :

144/(x-3)=16

of 16(x-3)=144

or 16x=144+48

or 16x=192

or x=192/16

x=12

Therefore numbers of children =12 ANS.
