Balls are to be transferred from larger boxes into smaller boxes. When a large box is emptied, the balls from it fill two smaller boxes and still 10 balls remains outside. If the number of balls in a small box are taken to be x, what is the number of balls in the larger box?

Expert Answer:

Number of ball in smaller boxes = x

Number of balls in the larger box = 2 x number of balls in small Box + balls left over

= 2x + 10
