Scott has a bag of candies. 2/5 of the candies are red. 3/10 of the candies are green. If there are 12 red candies, how many green candies are in the bag?

Let total candies = C

Given , total red candies = 2/5 of C

12= 2/5 *C

(12*5)/2=C

C=60/2=30

Now total candies=30

And there are given that 3/10 are green Candies of total candies.

Now , green Candies= 3/10 of total candies

                                    = (3/10)* 30

                                  = 90/10= 9

Therefore , total green candies=9
