Question

During a sale, a cookie shop sold three times more packets of chocolate cookies as compared to wheat flour cookies and twice as many packets of almond cookies as compared to wheat flour cookies. If the total numbers of cookie packets sold are 600, the number of packets of chocolate cookies that got sold are:


  1. 300

  2. 400

  3. 100

  4. 200


Solution

The correct option is A

300


Let the number of packets of wheat flour cookies sold be x

Numbers of packets of chocolate cookies sold are 3x

Numbers of packets of almond cookies sold are 2x

Now, from the given condition,

x + 3x + 2x = 600

6x = 600

x =100

Number of packets of chocolate cookies sold = 3x = 300
