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 * x = 40 x = 40*4 x=160

    well 40 more candies were left right? so that means 40 must equal 3/4

    ur right, missread each one 1/4, so 2/4=1/2, the answer is 80

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