Free notebooks were distributed equally among children of a class. The number of notebooks each child got was one-eighth of the number of children. Had the number of children been half, each child would have got 16 notebooks. Total how many notebooks were distributed ?

Answers (1)

Let the number of notebooks be x and number of children be y.


y/8=x/y => y2=8x

16 = x/(y/2)

x/y=8 => y=64

So x=512
