My father bought many iterms at a store that was going out of business. He bought two picture frames, four baskets for my mother, and a super - sized bag of jolly ranchers. My sister and I each ate 1/4 of the total candies in the bag and there were still 40 left. How many candies were originally in the bag??

1/4 + 1/4 = 2/4 = 1/2 40 : 1/2 = 40 * 2 = 80
