Blue -> 3/8 of the total 3/8

Red -> 1/4 of the total 1/4 = 2/8

Yellow -> 5/6 of the remainder

Blue = 3/8

Red = 1/4

the remainder

1 - 3/8 - 1/4

1 - 3/8 - 2/8

Yellow = 5/6 * 3/8 = 5/16

5/16 -> 20

1/16 -> 20 / 5 = 4

16/16 = 4 * 16 = 64

1 box - 3/8 - 1/4 = 9/24 of which 5/6 are yellow

9/24 * 5/6 * t = 20 t = total bands
