Conditions 66544

I have a box that contains white, milk, and dark chocolate candies. The ratio of white to milk candies is 3:4. The ratio of white to dark candies is 4:3. The least amount of candies in the box if the conditions of the ratio of candies are met.

Correct answer:

n =  37

Step-by-step explanation:

n=a+b+c a:b=3:4 a:c = 4:3  4a = 3b 3a = 4c  12a = 9b 12a = 16c  12a = 9b = 16c  a=12 b=16 c=9  n=a+b+c=12+16+9=37
