5. Sally is fond of drinking soda. She gets one full bottle for every 5 empty bottles. She has 77 empty bottles. How many max bottles of soda can sally drink??(4 marks)
Ans: 19 bottles
From 77 bottles, she can use 75 empty bottles to get 15 full bottles.
Remaining 2 from 77
Adding 2 to 15,gives 17 empty bottles.
From 17 bottles, she can use 15 empty bottles to get 3 full bottles.
Remaining 2 from 17
Emptying the 3 new ones and adding 2 prev ones gives one. Hence she gets 1 more for these 5.
Hence 15+3+1 = 19 bottles of soda
