Lucy and the Chocolate Factory

Gif from


Lucy was packaging chocolates at the chocolate factory.  She just started her shift when the machine malfunctioned. The candies were coming out too fast.

Lucy stuffed  1/6 of the chocolates into her pocket.

Then, she took 1/5 of what was left, and hid them under her hat.

She put 1/4 of the remaining candies into her purse.

Next she hid 1/3 of those left under her shirt.

And finally, shoved 1/2 of what was left into her mouth.

When her boss came to check on her, there were only 3 chocolates remaining on the belt.

How many chocolates did Lucy have at the beginning of her shift?
