I have 97 pieces of candy that I would like to put into plastic Easter eggs to hide for my kids. I want to hide 40 eggs in total, some blue and some purple. (Blue and purple are their favorite colors.) The blue eggs hold 3 pieces of candy, and the purple eggs hold 2 pieces of candy. How many blue eggs and how many purple eggs should I get?

    17 blue eggs and 23 purple

    Step-by-step explanation:

    what we do is very simple

    2 eggs one of each = 5

    Then we distribute 97

    b = (90/2 + 1 + 1) / 3 p = (90/2 + 1) / 2

    b = 47/2 p = 46 / 2

    b = 17 p = 23
