Tea with Sugar, Please

Mrs. Potts and Chip have prepared afternoon tea for the servants of the Beast's castle. With her spout aimed to pour the first cup, Mrs. Potts realizes she only has 8 sugar cubes left in the pantry, and fears she may not have enough to go around for everyone.

  • Lumiere likes 2 sugar cubes with his tea.
  • Cogsworth must have 4 cubes, or else its too bitter for him to drink.
  • Madame de la Grande Bouche doesn't want any sugar because she's trying to watch her size.
  • Babette likes her tea just a little sweet, so 1 cube will be enough for her.

Will Mrs. Potts have enough cubes to please all of the servants? And what about Chip? How many cubes will be left over for Chip?
