Harold loves to eat cookies. He eats 1/4 of the package on Monday. On Tuesday, he eats 13 cookies. On Wednesday, he eats 1/2 as many as he did on Monday. If there are 22 cookies left in the package on Thursday, how many cookies did he start with?

Hello Guest!

$$\frac{p}{4}+13+\frac{p}{8}+22=p\\ \frac{8p-2p-p}{8}=25\\ 5p=8\cdot 25\\ p=40\\ \color{blue}x=\frac{p}{4}=\frac{40}{4}=10$$

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mon = x/4        Tue = 13         Wed = x/8          left = 22

x/4 + 13 +x/8 + 22 = x

x = 56

Mon = 14

Tue = 13

Wed = 7

Left = 22

Total 56 cookies        (This is what he started with!)
