Brain Teaser 3/29/2013
Several contestants are in a chocolate-bunny eating contest. After 20 minutes of stuffing their faces, all of the bunnies have been eaten. One of the contestants remarks, "Isn't it interesting that there were 7 times as many bunnies as contestants, but that each of us ate a different number of bunnies?"
Another contestant replies, "That certainly is interesting. I always eat the ears first and I noticed that when we had eaten a third of the bunnies that there were 4 fewer than 10 times as many bunny ears as human noses in the contest."
How many bunnies and contestants were in the contest?
