# Shoemaker

Both the shoemaker and his apprentice repaired his shoes. The apprentice worked for 6 days and repaired 10 pairs of shoes every day. The shoemaker did the same job in 4 days. How many pairs of shoes did the shoemaker repair per day?

Correct result:

x =  15

#### Solution:

$u=6 \cdot \ 10=60 \ \\ x=u/4=60/4=15$
