Mary baked some pies. She packed 1/3 of the pies in 8 small boxes and 2/5 of

the pies in 7 big boxes. She donated the remaining pies to a charity. Each big

box had 26 more pies than each small box. How many pies were packed in

boxes altogether?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Single small box => **x **Single big box => **x + 26**

8x / (x + 26) = (1/3) / (2/5) **x = 70**

Total pies = **1232 **
