2.There were candies on the table. Andy grabbed 50% of the total candies, Bob grabbed 20% of the total and Cam took only 5% of the total. Now there are only 40 candies left on the table?

how many candies were on the table to begin with?

how many candies did each boy eat?

I was thinking really hard for these 2 questions but to be honest I dont have a clue. I have finished the rest of my homework though. these are the last 2 questions. Please help me . Thanks .

**PsyDAG**, Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 3:57pm1. Let x = you drink price, then x+5 = your son's.

2x + (x+5) = 18.50

3x = 13.50

x = 4.50

Take it from there.

2. Let x = total number of candies.

x - .5x - .2x - .05x = 40

Solve for x and then the proportions for each person.
