Problem of the week on wings to go

timer Asked: Sep 30th, 2015

Question description

At Annie's home-cooked chicken wings restaurant, chicken wings are served by the bucket. The biggest bucket of wings is really big. Let's figure out how many wings are in it. If they are removed two at a time, one wing will be left. If they are removed three at a time, two wings will remain. If they are removed four, five, six at a time, then three, four, and five wings, respectively, will remain. If they are taken out seven at a time, no wings will be left over. What is the smallest possible number of wings that could be in the bucket? How do you know?
