Hi

Each has equal number of donuts --> 12 units
Clara --> 4 units/box x 3 boxes, 2 boxes (Clara)--> 8 units
Siti --> 3 units/ box x 4 boxes, 3 boxes (Siti)--> 9 units
Joy --> 2 units/box x 6 boxes, 3 boxes (Joy) --> 6 units
Total --> 8 + 9 + 6 = 23 units
23 units --> 138, 1 unit --> 6
Total number of donuts --> 12 x 6 x 3 = 216

cheers.

Chatty
