just for fun, does anyone know the answer to this?

Ali, Rahmat, and John went to the beach to play. After hours of playing, they promptly fell asleep from exhaustion.

A short time later, Ali awoke and found a box of pears. Ali ate one third of the pears and went back to sleep. Rahmat soon awoke and upon seeing the pears, ate one third of what was left and then fell asleep. John woke up next and ate one third of what remained. When John finished, there were 8 pears left over. How many pears were in the box originally?
