Welcome to #MondayMath. For a few months now, we have been posing Math questions every Monday on our Facebook page. These are questions that our students also encounter in Mathematics classes at B.D. Somani.
Last week, we asked you about your favourite candy. This week, you get to relive the days when you fancied yourself a philatelist.

If she gives 8 stamps to each of her friends, she will not have any left.
If she gives 6 stamps to each of her friends, she will have 4 stamps left.
