Redda wanted to give marbles to the neighborhood children. If he gives 10 marbles to each child, he would be 35 short. If he tries 13 marbles each, he will would be short of 119 marbles. How many marbles does he have in total?

Let's denote the total number of children in the neighborhood as ( n ). According to the problem:

If Redda gives 10 marbles to each child, he would be 35 marbles short: [ 10n = T  35 ]

If Redda gives 13 marbles to each child, he would be 119 marbles short: [ 13n = T  119 ]
Where ( T ) represents the total number of marbles Redda has.
We can solve these equations simultaneously to find the values of ( n ) and ( T ). Subtracting the first equation from the second, we get: [ 3n = 84 ] [ n = 28 ]
Substituting the value of ( n ) into either equation, we can find ( T ): [ 10(28) = T  35 ] [ T = 280 + 35 ] [ T = 315 ]
So, Redda has a total of 315 marbles.

When evaluating a onesided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
