Dave's sister baked 3 dozen pies of which half contained chocolate, two thirds contained marshmallows, three-fourths contained cayenne, and one-sixth contained salted soy nuts. What is the largest possible number of pies that had none of these ingredients?

If you use a Venn diagram, and write the equations, you get y = 9x - 108.  So the largest possible number of pies without any ingridients is 12.
