21 sweets

rm15 buy 15 sweets
15 wrappers change 5 sweets
5 wrappers change 1 sweet

Calvin's Wife said...

buy 15 get 5

3 from 5 get another 1

1 + remaining 2 got other one

end up with extra wrapper!

I don't have a thinking cap...
can i still qualify to answer this question??

x said...

semua salah...

i tunjuk formula:

let x= no of sweets

Solution: Using the Multiplication Principle,
multiply each side of the equation
by (1/4).

(1/4)4x = (1/4)9

The variable is now isolated.

x = 24
