Christmaths Advent Calendar 2013: Day 19

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?

In his sack today he has less than 50 parcels.

  • He counts the parcels in groups of five. He has 2 left over.
  • Then he counts the parcels in groups of four. He has 3 left over.
  • Finally, he counts the parcels in groups of three. He has 2 left over.
