There were 184 more chocolates than sweets at a candy store at first. At the end of the day, the number of chocolates at first to the number of chocolates sold was 8:3 and the number of sweets sold to the number of sweets left became 2:3. The number of sweets left was half the number of chocolates left. How many more chocolates than sweets were sold?

C==Chocolates,  S==Sweets, A=Chocolates sold, B==Sweets sold.
C  -  S==184
C/A ==8/3
B /[S - B]==2/3
S  -  B==1/2[C  - A], solve for A, B, C, S


A = 144 and B = 80 and C = 384 and S = 200
144 - 80 ==64 more chocolates were sold than sweets.
