### Your teacher has brought some sweets for the class. After giving 3 sweets each to 15 children who had completed their homework, she has 60 sweets left. How many did she bring to school?

• A.

• C.

105

• D.

C. 105
Explanation
If the teacher gave 3 sweets each to 15 children and had 60 sweets left, we can calculate the total number of sweets she brought to school. Since she gave away 3 sweets to each of the 15 children, the total number of sweets given away is 3 x 15 = 45. If she had 60 sweets left after giving away 45, then she must have brought 60 + 45 = 105 sweets to school.
