  1. If you have not done algebra, you can use the method of false position (like the ancient Egyptians did)

    If they sold 1 almond bar, then they sold 3*1=3 mints, and 2*1=2 caramels for a total of 1+3+2=6 bars.

    If they sold a total of 3750 bars, then almonds = 3750/6=625
    Mint = 3*625=1875
    Caramel =2*625=1250

    Using algebra:
    A=almond bars
    C=2*A
    M=3*A

    Solve for A:
    A+C+M=6A=3750
    A=3750/6=625
    M=3*625=1875
    C=2*625=1250

  2. Use the method of divding and multiplaction.

    take 3,750 and divide that by 3

    then take your answer from that and multiply that by 2 and you will get your answer!!
