One night the King couldn't sleep, so he went down into the Royal kitchen, where he found a bowl full of
mangoes. Being hungry, he took 1/6 of the mangoes.
Later that same night, the Queen was hungry and couldn't sleep. She, too, found the mangoes and took 1/5
of what the King had left.
Still later, the first Prince awoke, went to the kitchen, and ate 1/4 of the remaining mangoes.
Even later, his brother, the second Prince, ate 1/3 of what was then left.
Finally, the third Prince ate 1/2 of what was left, leaving only three mangoes for the servants.

How many mangoes were originally in the bowl?
