Work Step by Step

First we find how many wreaths Jennie makes per year, so we multiply the wreaths per week by weeks per year: 24 * 40 = 960 wreaths per year. Then we find the number of boxes per year by dividing by the number of wreaths per box: 960 / 6 = 160 boxes. Finally, we divide the total number of boxes by number of shops: 160 / 5 = 32 boxes per store.
