I need help for this question.

There are 4 types of candies in a shop. 144 of them are chocolates. Of the remaining candies, 1/6 are gummies, 7/12 are toffees and the rest are lollipops. If 1/6 of the total number of candies in the shop are lollipops, how many candies are there in the shop altogether? (answer is 432). kindly show me the working. Thanks a lot.

Hi Jessica,

Pls find the following worked solution:

< Remaining Candies >
G = 1/6 = 2/12
T = 7/12
L = 3/12

Given that L makes up 1/6 total, we have ...
3u --> 1/6 total
1u --> 1/18 total
12u --> 12/18 total = 2/3 total (makes up the Remaining Candies )

Hence, 1/3 total = 144 C
3/3 total = 3 x 144 = 432

==============================

Trust this helps.

Cheers,
Edward

1/6 = 2/12
1 - 2/12 - 7/12 = 3/12
3/12 -> 1/6 total
Gummies + toffees = 9/12 = 3/6 total
3/6 + 1/6 = 4/6
1 - 4/6 = 2/6
144 = 2/6 total
6/6 total = 432

Razz
Make 1/6 to 2/12. ( Numerator times 2 . Below also)
1-2/12-7/12 = 3/12
3/12 > 1/6 (Simplify)
9/12 = 3/6 ( Simplify)
3/6 + 1/6 =4/6
1-4/6=2/6
144 is 2/6.
6/6 = 432.

Same working solution as sokechan Smile
