Answer is `8 Cases`

As 28 Shoes in 1 single Case. which means 14 pairs of Shoes in 1 Case. to pack all 112 pairs of shoes we need 8 Cases (112 / 14 = 8).

28 shoes = 14 pair
112/14 = 8

Ans = 8

A case can hold 28 shoes that means 14 pairs. So 8 cases will be needed to pack 112 pairs of shoes.

8 cases will be required to pack 112 pairs of shoes while each case can hold upto 14 pairs...
