A chocolate bar is separated into several equal pieces. If one person eats 1/4 of the pieces; and a second person eats 1/2 of the remaining pieces; there are six pieces left over. Into how many pieces was the original bar divided?
Answers for sheet # 75
n = number of chocolate pieces
n - (n/4) - (1/2) x (n-n/4) = 6
n - (n/4) - (n/2) + (n/8) = 6
n = 16 pieces
