There were some chocolates in a box. Santosh gave 1/4thof the chocolates to Pinku,1/3rd of the chocolates to poonam and 50 chocolates to ALpana . How many chocolates were in the box ?

Dear student,

Let the total number of chocolates be x..
Santosh gave 1/4 of x to pinku = x/4.
Also, Santosh gave 1/3 of x to Poonam = x/3

Then x/3 + x/4 = 7x/12

Remaining.. = x-7x/12 = 5x/12

Santosh gave 50 chocolates to Alpana
​​      Or       x=50*12/5=120

Therefore, total number of chocolates =120
