During a weekend, the manager of a mall gave away gift cards to every 80th person who visited the mall. On Saturday 1,210 people visited the mall and on Sunday 1,814 visited the mall. How many people received a gift card?
A manager gives gift cards to every 80th customer. On Saturday, 1210 customers entered, while on Sunday, 1814 customers entered. We are asked to find the number of people who received gift cards.
(1) Probably the most efficient method is to divide 1210 by 80.
(The first gift card was given to the 80th person and 80/80=1. The second to the 160th person and 160/80=2. The third to the 240th person and 240/80=3, etc...)
