The candy factory sells three times as many mints as it sells almonds 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?

  1. Steve

    m = 3a
    a = c/2
    m = 3750
    Now just substitute:
    c = 2a = 2(m/3) = 2(3750/3) = 2500
