Christmaths Advent Calendar 2013: Day 14

This year’s Christmaths Advent Calendar will have a question for every day in December up to and including Christmas Day, each one featuring a new mathematical challenge.

Can you use the clues to find out how many parcels Santa has in his sack?

  • He counts them in groups of two. He has 1 left over.
  • He then counts them in groups of three. He has 0 left over.
  • He finally counts them in groups of five. He has 1 left over.
