Abigail sells rice to store. she has a total of 125 cavans that she plans to distribute to three stores. if she gives 1/5 of what she has to store A can she devide the remaining equally to store B and C? how many store A and store B get?

1/5 of 125 = 125 divided by 5
What's the answer to that?
Once you know what 125/5 is, the rest should be easy. 
If she gives 1/5 (25) to store A, that leaves 100 to distribute to stores B and C (50 each).
Store A: 25
Store B: 50
Store C: 50
Total: 125
