This week: Christmas Cakes

As a Christmas treat, a tire company is arranging a party for all its apprentices. It bought 9 boxes of snacks containing a total of 88 small cakes. There were 3 different types of cake, which happened to come from 3 different companies. The almond cakes were packaged 8 to a box, the chocolate chip cakes came 10 to a box, and the raisin & nut package contained 12 per box. The company bought the most boxes of almond cake, but had the most raisin & nut cakes.
