Correct, now if you want to distribute equally the amount of candy among 'f' friend, how many candy bars will each friend get?

But let's suppose we do not know and we do not want to solve the problem, we'll keep f as the number of friends, you agree that, 18/2 = f

Amount of candy bars Mitch wants to keep for himself is 10 Amount of candy bars his friend would get, in term of the variable 'f', would the the number of friend (f) times the number of candies each of them would receive, 2, thus, 2f Therefore the equation to express this would be?
