Ava, Grace, Jayden, and Zoe together stacked a total of 50 brownies on a tray. Ava stacked 0.14 of the brownies, Grace stacked 4 of the 50 brownies, Jayden stacked 24% of the brownies, and Zoe stacked the remaining brownies. Who stacked the most brownies?

Ava: 0.14-14/100*50=7 brownies

Grace: 4/50*50=4 brownies

Jayden: 24/100*50=12 brownies

So, Zoe=50-23=27

zoe: 27 brownies

Thus, Zoe stacked the most brownies!

We don't actually need to calculate the number of brownies, but just the percentage.

Ava stacked 0.14 of the brownies, this is 14%.

Grace stacked 4/50 brownies, which is 8%.

Jayden stacked 24%.

Zoe stacked 100 - 14 - 8 - 24 = 54%

Therefore, Zoe stacked the most.
