You want to pick out a perfect red rose for someone special. When you get to the cafeteria you discover: *every third rose is too short *every fourth rose has too many thorns *every fifth rose is wilted *every sixth rose is pink *every eighth rose is yellow If these are the only problems that the roses have, how many perfect roses are there for you to choose from? The problem requires to show all work. I would think that there is an algebraic expression that would help me out, but I am in need of help. I can help myself by making pictures to help visualize, but I think there must be a better way. Please help me if you can. Thank you!
