    Slide 2 - Question:

    • Some family friends have asked you to plan a rafting expedition. A rafting company has agreed to take your group down the Babbling River.
    • The rafting company has given you specific details on how much weight a raft can hold.
    • A raft can safely carry the weight of 24 babies.
    • As everyone knows, the weight of 12 babies is exactly equal to the weight of 4 teenagers; the weight of 6 teenagers is exactly equal to the weight of 3 adults. Figure out the least number of rafts that is needed for a trip with 11 adults, 5 teenagers, and 21 babies. (Supervision of the babies is not necessary.)
