Mrs. Olivett gave her four children a large sack of candy corn to share. Marcos ate 1/2of the candy corns in the sack and passed the sack to Rachel. Rachel ate 1/3 of the remaining candy corns and passed the sack to Freddy. Freddy then ate 1/4 of the candy corns that remained and passed the sack to Britt. Britt ate the last 12 pieces of candy corn. How many pieces of candy corn did Marcos eat?
do you just add everything backwards?
wait. i may be wrong.. what did you get. word problem is my biggest weakness in math
i think its sorta wrong... Marcos ate like 247500 candy corn
i meant to say there are 288 candies in total. marcos ate 144
rachel ate 96, and freddy ate 36 britt ate the last 12
