The total number of marbles is
There is a typo error in the question.
Helena lost her marbles. But then she found them and put them in 4 bags with m marbles in each bag.
So, total marbles are = 4m
She had 3 marbles left over that didn't fit in the bags.
So, the total number of marbles is
4m + 3
As per rule of division :
Dividend = (Divisor) x (Quotient) + Remainder
Example : 23 = (5 x 4) + 3
So, no. of total marbles that Helena has put in 'm' bags with '4' marbles in each bag = 4m
No. of remaining marbles = 3
Hence, Total marbles she would have had = 4m + 3
the answer is 4m+3
y = 444mmm + 333
let total marbles = y
putting mmm marbles in 444 bags we have the total in the bags to be 444mmm
but there are 333 marbles left that didnt fit in the bags giving us (+333)
adding them both together
therefore the total marbles will be 444mmm + 333
Here is your answer
There are 444 bag with m marbles in each, which means the total number of marbles is 444m.
Now, 333 are left over, therefore, the total number of marbles is 444m + 333.
