A merchant can place 8 large boxes or 10 small boxes into each carton for shipping. In one shipment, he sent a total of 96 boxes.
If there are more large boxes than small boxes, how many cartons did he ship?
REVEAL THE ANSWER
11 cartons total: 7 cartons of large boxes (7 * 8 = 56 boxes), 4 cartons of small boxes (4 * 10 = 40 boxes).
