22. Three friends, returning from a movie, stopped to eat at a
restaurant. After dinner, they paid their bill and noticed of mints at the front counter. John took 1/3 of the mints, but returned four because she had a momentary pang of guilt. Michelle then took 1/4 of what was left but returned three for similar reasons. Andy then took half of the remainder but threw two back into the bowl. The bowl had only 17 mints left when the raid was over. How many mints were originally in the bowl?

a)38
b)31
c)41
d) None of these

question asks for original number of mints.
John picks 1/3 of mints in the beginning and none of the answers are a multiple of 3. Thus answer D.
is this the shortest way..?
But i have not really calculated mints.. :P
