**Reiny**, Wednesday, July 10, 2013 at 9:46pmlet c be the number of diet cherry drinks

total drinks = 12+8+6+8+10+c = 52+c

diet drinks = 6+10 + c

= 16+c , I didn't count caffeine free as diet

(16+c)/(52+c) = 44/100 = 11/25

400 + 25c = 572 + 11c

14c = 172

c = a fraction, ---> should not be a fraction, should be a whole number

let's count caffeine free as diet

number of diet = 24+c

(24+c)/(52+c) = 11/25

600+25c = 572 + 11c

14c = a negative, this is even worse !!!

Unless I misread the question, the question is bogus.
