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

Of the books Joe sorted in the library, \frac{1}{3}were fiction. After he sorted out the fiction books, there were 136 books left.
How many books did Joe have to sort at the start?
105 books
119 books
144 books
204 books

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
