a box of munchkins contains chocolate and glazed donut holes. if Gloria ate 2 chocolate , then 1/11 of the remianing munchkins would be chocolate. if she added 4 glazed to the box, 1/7 of the box would chocolate. how many munchkins are in the original box?

  • math -

    g = glazed holes
    c = chocolate holes

    c+g-2 = 11(c-2)
    c+g+4 = 7c

    Solve these to get
    c=4
    g=20

    Eat 2c, leaving 2c/22 total = 1/11
    Add 4g, gives 4c+24g = 4/28 choc.
