If you have not done algebra, you can use the method of false position (like the ancient Egyptians did)

If they sold 1 almond bar, then they sold 3*1=3 mints, and 2*1=2 caramels for a total of 1+3+2=6 bars.

If they sold a total of 3750 bars, then almonds = 3750/6=625

Mint = 3*625=1875

Caramel =2*625=1250

Using algebra:

A=almond bars

C=2*A

M=3*A

Solve for A:

A+C+M=6A=3750

A=3750/6=625

M=3*625=1875

C=2*625=1250

Use the method of divding and multiplaction.

take 3,750 and divide that by 3

then take your answer from that and multiply that by 2 and you will get your answer!!

The melt in your mouth chocolate factory is a rectangular building. The distance across the front of the store is 294 feet. The distance from the front to back is one-third of this distance. If the owners paint a sign all the way around the outside of the factory, how many feet long will the sign be?
