Answer

Mdm Shanti bought 1/3 as many chocolates as sweets. She gave each of her neighbours’ children 4 chocolates and 3 sweets, after which she had 6 chocolates and 180 sweets left. (a) How many children received the chocolates and sweets? (b) How many sweets did she buy?

(a)
chocolates : sweets
1 : 3

(number of children x 4 + 6) x 3 ——- (number of children x 3) + 180
12 x number of children + 18 ——- 3 x number of children + 180
number of children ——- (180 – 18)/9 = 18

18 x 3 + 180 = 234
