Boxes of teacakes

I have 73 teacakes. Each box holds 8 cakes. How many boxes do I need?

you would need 10 boxes, 73 would fill nine, and there would be one teacake with a box for itself :)

Agree it's 10 boxes, because: 8x9=72, so 9 boxes would be completely filled 73-72=1, so 1 teacake would be left which would need its own box All this talk of teacakes makes me hungry :)
