An assorted bag of M and M contains 60 candy pieces. If 2/5 are brown, how many candy pieces are not brown.

There are 60 candy pieces.

2/5 or 0.4 of these are brown

Number of brown candy pieces is 60* 0.4 = 24

Number of non brown candy pieces = 60 -24 = 36

Or alternatively

Number of non brown candy pieces = 60 * 3/5 = 60 *0.6 =36

Answer: number of candy pieces not brown = 36
