A nurse put 100 gloves into 4 containers. She puts gloves in the containers in such a way that each container has two more gloves than the one before.

How many gloves are in each container?

Answer: 22, 24, 26, and 28 gloves.
Let X be the number of gloves in the first container. Then there are X+2 gloves in the 2-nd container, X+4 gloves in the 3-rd container, and X+6 gloves in the 4-th container. Hence, we have X+X+2+X+4+X+6=100. Solving for X, we get X=22 gloves in the first container, 24 gloves in the 2-nd container, 26 gloves in the 3-rd container and 28 gloves in the 4-th container.
