Alan has a box of cookies. 25% of the cookies are chocolate-flavoured. 1/9 of the remaining cookies are butterscotch-flavoured. The other 16 cookies are caramel-flavoured. Find the total number of cookies in the box.

25% = 1/4

 

1/4 --> chocolate-flavoured

(3/4 * 1/9) --> Butterscotch-flavoured

[1-1/4-(3/4*1/9) --> Caramel-flavoured = 16. 
     2/3 of cookies --> 16

     ∴ Total number of cookies = 16 / 2/3

                                               = 24. laugh
