March 2 on Eggs

This problem is a common Primary 5 problem.

Sid had some eggs. After using one-fourth of them to make cakes and m of the remainder to make chawan mushi he had 60 eggs left. 

How many eggs did he have at first?
Solve the problem for m = one-third, one-sixth and one-fifth.

I did this lesson at Weston Internediate School today. 

The photograph was taken at The Snake Temples and the eggs were offerings made by devotees to the snakes in the temples.
