the melt in your mouth chocolate factory sells three times as many mints as it sells almond bars.it sells half as many almond bars as it sells caramels.if it sells 3,750 cases of mints each month,how many caramels does it sell in one month

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

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?
