IM stuck on a question. PLease help. A teacher is giving candy to his periods. First period gets 1/3 and 2nd period gets 1/4 and 3rd period gets 1/3 and finally 4th period gets 22 pieces. How many pieces did each period get? Im stuck!!

  • prealgebra - ,

    let the number he had be x

    x/3 + x/4 + x/3 + 22 = x
    times 12
    4x + 3x + 4x + 264 = 12x
    264 = x

    first class --- 264/3 = 88
    2nd class --- 264/4 = 66
    third class --- 88
    fourth class --- 22
