6. A gumball machine contains gumballs of 8 different colors, which are dispersed in a regularly repeating cycle. The fourth gumball in the cycle is red and the sixth gumball in the cycle is yellow. If 100 gumballs are dispensed from the machine, how many are not either red or yellow?After spending half the afternoon contemplating the position of subordinate clauses in sentences, I'm wondering whether I can read math at all.

What does this question mean?
If you were actually sitting in a room with this gumball machine, what would be coming out of it and in what sequence? When would you see the first red gumball, and when would you see the second? "When" meaning: after how many other gumballs have appeared?
I find the language in this book particularly challenging, by the way. I've never quite recovered from the watch 'gaining' 3 minutes per hour.
