    An old, an somewhat illegible invoice shows that 144 canned hams were purchased for $ x34.7y.

    How much does each can cost ?

    Assuming the cans cost an inetger number of cents:

    the total cost must be divisble by 48which means the last digit is a 2 (as in order to be dividsble by 8 the last 3 digits must be divisible by 8)

    the total cost must alos be divisble by 9 (which means that the sum of it's digits must be divisble by 9), which means the first digit is 2

    therefore the cost o each can is $1.63

    As this is a quickie thread:

    Why do some people dial 911 with their third finger and some with their forefinger?

    Is there some reason you avoided the more common "middle finger" usage ?
