### Chocolates

A shop sells 1 chocolate at Rs:1 each, You can exchange 3 wrappers for a chocolate. If you have Rs:15, then how many chocolates can you totally get ?

1) with Rs:15 you will get 15 chocolates --->15 wrappers
2)15 wrappers /3 = 5 chocolates ------> 5 wrapers
3) 5 wrappers /3 = 1 chocolate +2 wrappers------->3 wrappers
4) 3 wrappers / 3 = 1 chocolate

Total chocolates = 15+5+1+1 =22

Check also : How many Chocolates you will get if you have Rs. 45

15+5+1+1 = 22

15 chocs,
15 wafers /3 = 5 wafer= s -> 5 chocs,
5 wafers / 3 = 1 choc + 1 wafer
now 2 left wafers + 1 wafer = 3 wafers -> 1 choc

totally 15+5+1+1 = 22 chocs and 1 wafer being left with you.

Rs = 1
You have 15 Rs
You can therefor purchase 15 chocolates.
The value of the "wrappers" is another distraction and has nothing to do with the equation

Randy, we need to consider the value of wrappers also ....

Explanation

1) with Rs:15 you will get 15 chocolates --->15 wrapers

2)15 wrapers /3 = 5 chocolates ------> 5 wrapers

3) 5 wrapers /3 = 1 chocolate +2 wrapers------->3 wrapers

4) 3 wrapers / 3 = 1 chocolate

Total chocolates = 15+5+1+1 =22

ambiguous it doesn't say that buying a chocolate gives you a wrapper. but if it implies that then the answer is definately 22
