if every yellow is expensive, there are 40 expensive marbles that are yellow
half the expensives are yellow, meaning there are 80 expensive marbles in all.
That means there are 40 expensives that are not yellow.
there are 25 expensives that are not orange (or yellow). There are 40 nonyellow expensives.
So, there are 15 expensive orange marbles, and that's half of all the oranges.
There are 30 orange marbles.
