Brett made muffins for his grandmother, but he gave his friend Steve 1/8 of the muffins. Then Brett saw Dori and gave her 1/3 of what he had left. Then he saw Shiela and gave her 1/7 of what he had left. By the time he arrived at his grandmothers house there were only 12 muffins.

a. How many muffins did Brett make?

b. How many muffins did he give to each person?

Please explain

Thanks,

Mark
