A Carpenter Has 31 Wooden Legs Problem & Step By Step Solution

MATH PROBLEM – In this article, we are going to solve the math problem that goes “A carpenter has 31 wooden legs which he intends to use in making 3 legged tables and 3 legged chairs. How many tables and chairs did he make?“.

The answer to the problem is 10. Here is the step by step solution:

Let c = number chairs and t = number of tables. Therefore, we can say that for every c number of chairs, their will be 3c legs used. Then, for every t tables, there will b 3t legs used.

With this problem, we simply need to find the maximum number of tables and chairs the man could make. This means we initially have an inequality so we could subtract 1 from 31 to make 30.

Therefore, 3c + 3t = 30

3 (c + t) = 30

Therefore, (c + t) = 10
