On her birthday Priyanka equally distributed chocolates among her 120 classmates. But on that day 15 of her classmates were absent. Thus each friend got 4 extra chocolates. How many chocolates did each friend get?
Answer & Explanation
Let the number of chocolates each child got is x
Then, 120x/105 - x = 4
= (120x-105x)/105 = 4
= 15x = 420
So, x = 28
Thus each classmate got 28 + 4 = 32 chocolates
