Boxed in boxes (Posted on 2009-01-26) Difficulty: 1 of 5
Anne has boxes in three sizes: large, medium, and small.

She puts 11 large boxes on a table. She leaves some of these boxes empty, and in each of the other boxes she puts 8 medium boxes. She leaves some of these medium boxes empty, and in each of the other medium boxes she puts 8 (empty) small boxes. Now, 102 of all the boxes on the table are empty.

How many boxes has Anne used in total?
