The question is how many MORE boxes of assorted candies can be ADDED to the container that already has 30 boxes of chocolates.

The ratio is 1 chocolate is to 1.3 candies

In the box, it has space for 20 more chocolates (50 – 30 chocolates already in the box = 20)

20 * 1.3 = 26 candies.

ANSWER: 26 boxes of candies can still be added to the container with 30 boxes chocolates already.

OR

30/50=0.60 . 60% of the space is taken by chocolate.

That leaves 40% of the space to fill.

(0.40)(65 candies)=26

ANSWER: Twenty six boxes of assorted candies can still

be put in the container
