. Eggs are to be packed in cartons, each holding $ 12$ eggs. If there are $ 128$ eggs and as many cartons are filled as possible, how many eggs are left over?

In order to solve this problem you would need to divide the total number of eggs by the amount of eggs in each carton. Thus: 128/12. This can also be written as: (120/12)+(8/12). Thus there would be 10 cartons filled with 8 eggs left over. Hope that helps! :)
