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?
