Please break down and explain answer.
You make a bag of candy for yourself before you go to the movies. The bag consists of many different pieces of candy with Skittles, M&Ms, Life Savers, and Sour Patch Kids. Half of your pieces of candy are Skittles. A fourth of the remaining pieces of candy is M&Ms. Three-fourths of what is left after the Skittles and M&Ms is Life Savers. The remaining pieces of candy are Sour Patch Kids. What percent of the total pieces of candy are Sour Patch Kids?
1 - 1/2 -(1/2*1/4) - (1/2*1/4*3/4) = ?
Convert answer to percentage.
