Rose bought some candy. It tasted just like black cow root beer floats! She had 45 pieces of candy she gave 5 pieces of candy to each of 3 friends. She gave 2/5 of the rest of the candy to her sister. How many pieces of candy did she have left?

So after giving away 5 candies to each of her friends she has $45-5*3=30$, and $30-\frac{2(30)}{5}=30-2*6=30-12=\boxed{18}$ candies left
