A baker had 400 chocolate muffins and 800 blueberry muffins. 1/5 of all the muffins turned bad. The baker sold 160 chocolate muffins and 300 blueberry muffins. If he had 240 fewer chocolate muffins than blueberry muffins(a) What fraction of all the muffins were sold ?

(Give your answer in the simplest form)

(b) how many chocolate muffins turned bad ?

Tks.

b) 1/5 x 1200= 240

240 + 160 + 300 = 700 ( sold + bad)

Total muffin left 1200 - 700= 500

Left

B [1u][240] } 500

C [1u]

Choc muffin left

(500 -240)/2=130

Choc bad --> 400 - 160 - 130= 110
