How many candies are there in the box?

 

Hello Guest!

\(x= {\color{red}40\%x}+{\color{Dandelion}\frac{3}{5}(x-40\%x)}+\color{blue}\frac{2}{5}(x-40\%x)\\ {\color{red}40\%x}={\color{Dandelion}\frac{3}{5}(x-40\%x)}+18\\ x= {0,4x}+{\frac{3}{5}(x-0,4x)}+\frac{2}{5}(x-0,4x)\\ {0,4x}={\frac{3}{5}(x-0,4x)}+18\\ 0,4x=0,6x-0,24x+18\\ 0,04x=18\\ x=450 \)

 

450 candies are there in the box.
