# Solving Equations: Level 2 Challenges Five brothers stayed in the house with their mother. One day, their mother brought home some mangos.

Alex woke up first. As he was hungry, he ate $$\frac{1}{6}$$ of the mangoes, and headed out.
Brian woke up next. As he was hungry, he ate $$\frac{1}{5}$$ of what was left, and headed out.
Charles woke up next. As he was hungry, he ate $$\frac{1}{4}$$ of what was left, and headed out.
Danny woke up next. As he was hungry, he ate $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of what was left, and headed out.
Euler woke up next. As he was hungry, he ate $$\frac{1}{2}$$ of what was left, and headed out.

Their mother came home and saw 3 mangoes in the basket. How many mangoes were there initially? A teacher writes 6 consecutive integers on the blackboard.

He erases one of the integers and the sum of the remaining five integers is 2016.
