she knew that it was fewer than 100 candies.if she had counted by twos, threes, or fours, one would have been left.how many pieces of candy could gabriela have started with

L.C.M of 2,3,4=12

No of candies=12k+1(as 1 is remainder)

12k+1<100

k=8 is max value as k=9 gives 108+1=109

therefore total candies=12*8+1=97
