    Starting in the bottom left corner and moving either up or right, one square at a time, adding up the numbers along the way, what is the largest sum which can be made once you have reached the top right corner? (picture attached)

    solution;

    by putting 8 boxes in a box,the total number of boxes increases by

    8--1=7

    if we call ''x'' the number of times that 8 boxes have been put in a box,we know that,

    11+7x=102

    it follows that , ''x''=13;

    in total 11+13into8= 115 ;

    115 boxes have been used
