There are enough peanuts in a bag to give 12 peanuts to each of 20 children, with no peanuts left over. If 5 children do not want any peanuts, how many peanuts can be given to each of the others?

A. 12
B. 15
C. 16
D. 18
E. 20


If there are 12 peanuts to give to each of 20 children
=> Total peanuts =240

Children who dont want any peanuts =5

Now children who will get peanuts = 15

15 children now can get 240/15 = 16 peanut each.

IMO
Correct Answer C.

Total Peanuts in the bag = 12 x 20 = 240

If 5 children do not want any peanuts, = 12 x 5 = 60 Peanuts left

how many peanuts can be given to each of the others?
Remaining are 15 Children, so 60/15 = 4 Peanuts per child in addition to 12.
Total of 12+4 = 16


Correct Answer is C

total peanuts 12*20 = 240
children who would want peanuts = 15
so they would get 240/15 = 16 IMO C
