MCQ

Choose the most appropriate option for the following question.

There were twelve dozens of chocolates with a shopkeeper. Ten chocolates were distributed by the shopkeeper to the children of his colony. The shopkeeper then added two more dozens of chocolates in his stock. If the shopkeeper divided the total chocolates equally in two different packets, then how many chocolates were there in each packet?

• 152

• 89

• 158

• 79

#### Solution

79

Explanation:

Total chocolates before distributing to children = 12 × 12 = 144

10 chocolates were given to children, then number of chocolates left = 144 - 10 = 134

However, two more dozens of chocolates were added, then chocolates = 134 + 24 = 158

Number of chocolates per packet = 158/2 = 79
