2/5 are blue raspberry of the remaining ice sticks (which there are 3/5 remaining)...1/3 are grape. 1/3 of 3/5 = 1/3 * 3/5 = 3/15....so 3/15 are grape. and 3/5 - 3/15 = 9/15 - 3/15 = 6/15...these are cherry so 12/15 are blue raspberry and cherry..... 48 is 12/15 of what ? 48 = 12/15x 48/(12/15) = x 48 * 15/12 = x 60 = x check.. 2/5 are blue raspberry... 2/5 of 60 = 2/5 * 60 = 120/5 = 24 are blue raspberry 3/15 are grape.. 3/15 of 60 = 3/15 * 60 = 180/15 = 12 are grape 6/15 are cherry... 6/15 of 60 = 6/15 * 60 = 360/15 = 24 are cherry 24 + 24 + 12 = 60 48 + 12 = 60 60 = 60 (correct) there are 60 ice sticks in the box

if 1/3 were fiction, then 2/3 were something else 2/3 of what = 136 2/3x = 136 x = 136/(2/3) x = 136 * 3/2 x = 408/2 x = 204 check... 1/3 were fiction.. 1/3 of 204 = 1/3 * 204 = 204/3 = 68 were fiction 2/3 were not fiction.. 2/3 of 204 = 2/3 * 204 = 408/3 = 136 were not fiction 136 + 68 = 204 204 = 204 (correct) Joe had 204 books to sort
