Respected teacher,

Please help me solve this puzzle.

A basket contains some number of eggs. If they are:

counted in pairs, one will remain;

counted in threes, two will remain:

counted in fours, three will remain;

counted in fives, four will remain;

counted in sixes, five will remain;

counted in sevens, nothing will remain;

The basket can't accomodate more than 150 eggs.

So, how many eggs are there in the basket?
