Hi All,

This question involves a bit of logical thinking and factoring skills. You have to take notes and stay organized though, if you want to answer this question correctly.

We're told:
Blue chips = 1 point each
Green chips = 5 points each
Purple chips = X points each (more than Green, less than Red, so X = 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10)
Red chips = 11 points each

We're told that taking an unknown number of chips gives us a product equal to 88,000; we need to factor 88,000 and we should look specifically for 5s, 11s and some mystery number between 6 and 10, inclusive….

88,000 =
(11)(8,000) =
(11)(5)(1600) =
(11)(5)(5)(320) =
(11)(5)(5)(5)(64)

Now, we KNOW that there's a mystery number that is between 6 and 10 (inclusive) and MUST account for that 64….

64 = (8)(8)

This gives us 2 purple chips.

Final Answer:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
B
