Be fruitful and multiply. (Posted on 2015-08-27) Difficulty: 3 of 5
One day all of Mrs. Brown's grandchildren came to visit her.
There was a bowl of apples and pears on the kitchen table.
Mrs. Brown gave each child the same number of pieces of fruit
without keeping track of which kind.
Bobby got 1/8 of all the apples and 1/10 of all the pears.

How many grandchildren did Mrs. Brown have?
